The J/70 is the newest high performance keelboat by J/Boats with over 900 boats sailing in 20+ countries by the end of 2015. Named both the Sailing World Boat of the Year and the European Boat of the Year for 2013, the inaugural World Championship was held in our home waters of Newport in September 2014.
2017 looks to be an outstanding year for J/70s in Newport! The season kicks off in June with the newly-added NYYC One-Design Regatta, Bacardi has said they are coming, The Newport Regatta is looking to have a separate circle just for J/70s & J/24s, J/Fest is moving South and will be hosted from Fort Adams, and the Corinthain Nationals will be just 'down the Sound' in Buzzards Bay. Check out all the dates with links to the websites on the Fleet 2 Calendar.
Fleet 2 is primarily based out of Sail Newport at Fort Adams. Dry storage in the North Lot for the 2017 Summer Season will be availble here - reserve your space!
