Of the 500 boats entered for the upcoming Fastnet race, forty-Seven J Boats have entered the race! That is the largest number of entries by a single boat brand, in the world’s largest offshore race. A record entry of over 500 yachts is expected to start the race in Cowes, on 8th August 2021. Notably the first entry was a J Boat, Eva Herman’s J/122 Juliett Romeo.
For the last four decades, J Boats have featured in every edition of the race. For the 49th edition, 12 different designs of the J Boats range will be racing. J-Composites, French builder for J Boats, will be competing on one of four J/99s entered for the race.
