‘J Class Yachts ~ their History from the 30’s til Today’

The J Class has its roots in the oldest sporting race in the world, The America’s Cup. This international event was born from an annual race around the Isle of Wight in Great Britain, hosted by the Royal Yacht Squadron, that was originally called the ‘100 Guinea Cup’.

Our expert speaker Rick Delfosse of Norwalk Cove and Rex Marine will cover the history of these incredible 130 foot yachts with photos from his personal files and movie clips of old.
