Dear J/24 sailors.

I am Kunio Suzuki from the Wakayama sailing club. I am in charge as the race officer for the 2016 J/24 World Championship in Japan.

The venue, Wakayama sailing center is the National training center for Japanese sailors, and the race area, Wakaura-bay has been known as a beautiful place since the 8th century.

I will make every possible effort to welcome everyone, and waiting for your participation. I am looking forward to see you in Wakayama in September.
