J/70 class in action © J/70 Class Association

Come and see why the J/70 (7m Sports Boat) from J/Boats is one of the fastest growing sailboat classes in the World.

The Australian J/70 Class Association will be on hand to chat through why they love the J/70 and why it has become an international success story. Whether it be the high performance and fun factor, easy and exciting for the entire family, or ease of ownership. The J/70 class brings the opportunity to race with user friendly one-design class rules and the ability to venture overseas to magnificent locations and sail with the best sailors.

The J/70 is also very competitive in mixed fleet racing, and yet simple enough to take the family for a day sail.

Today, the J/70 worldwide fleet is nearly 1,700 boats strong, attracting some of the most talented sailors in the world and helping to spark the growth of numerous sailing leagues around the World.

The J/70 comes with a large comfortable cockpit with open transom, deck-stepped lightweight carbon mast, plus carbon boom and carbon retractable bow sprit. She is easy to trailer with her vertical lifting keel and can be ramp launched or lifted with the club crane.

For further information, come and see the J/70 at Club Marine SailExpo, RPAYC Newport 27-28 April 2019 from 10am to 4pm, or contact J Boats at .
