Howth Yacht Club's J24 under–25 team are in the top third of the 63–boats J24 World Championships in Ontario, Canada.

Sailing the HYC J–boat Scandal, the only Irish sailing in the event are skippered by Lizzy McDowell with Ciaran White, Darragh White, Harry Conin and Graham Blay onboard. 

While major storms continue to batter coastal regions of North America, fickle breeze was the theme of the opening day at the Championship in Mississauga.

Tony Parker's Bangor Packet and James Freedman's Miss Conduct are tied on points at 9, with Parker holding that tie-breaker by way of a 7,2 on Tuesday (Freedman earned a 4,5) for the early advantage. David Klatt's Jaded and Mark Laura's Baba Louie sit tied at 21 for third and fourth place, respectively.
