J/70 Ready to Roll for New York YC Qualifiers

'J/70 speedster- bow quarter profile showing sweet, curving lines'    Stuart Johnstone    Click Here to view large photo

The family pocket rocketship is nearly ready to launch! The new 'baby J' is looking sleek, sweet and sexy. Sweeping, curvy lines. Powerful, firm buttocks. Knife-like entry to part the seas. More than enough room to accommodate a crew of three in the cockpit.

What's not to like about this ramp-launchable, trailerable sailing machine? J/70 has something for everyone-- easy-to-store, easy-to-launch anywhere there's a driveway and a boat ramp; comfortable cockpit with lifelines for safety; small cabin with enough room below for seating and even a roomy v-berth (caravanning & camping anyone?); stiff and fast upwind; lights-up downwind, blazing a smokin' wake of foam in its after-burners. Guaranteed it will be hard to wipe that cheshire-cat grin off your face after a quick tour on this sweet little ride.

The first two J/70s are quickly taking shape at CCF Composites and all systems are 'go' for launching and sea-trials later this month. Work begins shortly on a second set of production molds and the production schedule is on track for subsequent hulls to complete starting in mid/late April. European tooling is on its way across the northern Atlantic to Les Sables d'Olonne, France.

J/70 customer demo sails can be booked now through your local J/Dealer. Starting April 14th we will be offering customer demos in Rhode Island on J/70 1.

Meanwhile J/70 2 heads south for display/ demonstration at Charleston Race Week, April 19-22. Don Trask (djtboats(at)aol.com or ph704-799-1830) is leading this charge and all J/Dealers are encouraged to invite clients who are attending CRW to check out the J/70 on site.

Next on the calendar is the Annapolis NOOD Regatta May 4-6, where Northpoint Yacht Sales will be displaying the J/70, contact Ken Comerford (ken@northpointyachtsales.com) or Dave Malkin (David@northpointyachtsales.com) or ph410-280-2038 for more details.

Finally, participants in the New York YC USA Qualifying Series held in Newport, RI will have opportunities to sail the boat in Newport prior to the event. Please be sure to contact your local J/Dealer for demo sails.
