J/24 Fleet #1    

WYC J/24 Fleet #1 Overview

Founded in 1977 by John Gjerde, the Wayzata Yacht Club J/24 Fleet is the first and oldest J/24 fleet in the world.  Since established, the fleet has had many accomplishments.  It hosted the 2013 J/24 US National Championship, and the 2009 J/24 North American Championship.

Lake Minnetonka is the perfect body of water for racing the J/24 class of sailboat.  The fleet is an experienced and thriving organization with many individuals dedicated to growing the fleet, the club, and the sport of sailing.  We assist potential new boat owner including boat shopping, boat setup, repair, tuning, and maintenance.  The novice and top of the fleet boats alike can enjoy tight one-design racing.
