Always beautiful to see J-Class yachts on the water and in action ... VERY NICE VIDEO

Especially liked seeing THE FUN folks were having ... and ... helping to get these large yachts into and out of the water (special lifting hooks used by CPM-Chesapeake Performance Models at each end of the yacht to allow reaching low into the water from the dock - good idea)

We have been to more than a few full size events with models and although it seems interest would be good, it just is not. We had a pool inside the beer tent at KWRW offering two boat match racing and no one, and I do mean no one took the controls for the entire week. Lots of lookers but not a single race.

Hopefully your experience will be different.

Thank you S.J.


Good to know that information......

A soling (r/c) and also Ensign owner will be there.

Who knows.

It will be fun.
