J Class Arrives on Social Media

by J Class Association on 3 Mar 2012
J-Class Newport Regatta J-Class Association

The Official J Class Facebook page and @OfficialJClass Twitter account have both been established to relay news and images to supporters around the world in real time.

These J Class Social Media accounts give supporters an opportunity to interact with the class and each other, sharing their own J Class images and stories.

These sites are regularly updated with regatta information, images, and class news, but fans will really start to benefit once the Js arrive in the UK, when they will have access to racing images and videos, interviews, and more.

The brand new J Class YouTube Channel is collecting J Class videos in one place for easy access, this is already offering wonderful footage of the yachts racing and the channel is set to grow very rapidly. The J Class YouTube channel is the best place to get all the racing footage from this summer’s regattas.

Supporters Club

The supporters club has been established to answer the many enquiries that we cannot handle on a normal day and to offer much more technical and historical background about this superb fleet.

For just £18 per year, fans can join the J Class Supporters’ Club at www.jclasssupporters.com.

Members receive regular newsletters, a gift pack including an exclusive J Class lapel pin and A2 regatta poster, up to 15% off J Class merchandise, access to the J Class Supporters’ forum, and a comprehensive 'regatta watching' pack. Members also receive advance information of dates, vantage points, deals, and racing courses.

Best of all, four lucky supporters will be picked at random before the regattas and given the chance for them and a friend to visit the boats’ secure berthing facilities and see the Js and their support vessels on the pontoon; an opportunity that money simply can’t buy. There will be more exclusive Supporters’ benefits announced in the months preceding the regattas.
