J CLASS RE­NAIS­SANCE

The J Class, ar­guably among the most beautiful sail­ing yachts ever to cross a start line, has seen a ma­jor resur­gence in re­cent years, with six new hulls com­mis­sioned and two more on the way, aug­ment­ing the three sur­vivors from the 1930s. The fleet has be­gun to gather for racing events on both sides of the At­lantic and points be­tween. A mar­quis J Class re­gatta took place in ber­muda in June, in con­junc­tion with the 35th America’s Cup. Seven Js, old and new, com­peted to the de­light of sailors around the world.
