J-Class Yachts
The J Class has its roots in the oldest sporting race in the world, The America's Cup. This International Event came from an annual race around the Isle of Wight held by the Royal Yacht Squadron, but in 1851an overseas yacht was allowed to participate. The yacht "America" was built that year to an innovative new design and had sailed to the Solent in search of racing. Initially excluded from racing against British yachts, she was finally allowed to enter the Round The Island Race for the '100 Guinea Cup'. Many Cornish fisherman spent the summers crewing these beautiful racing yachts during the early part of the last century to supplement their income. Lots more information and sounds on our Looe Maritime Archive site.
