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.

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

Who knows.

It will be fun.

Put telemetry in a friend's J-Class Ranger this weekend just for fun. Came up with this:

Full Un-Edited file from dock to dock:
1.25 Miles sailed, which equates to 1.08 Nautical Miles
Max speed is incorrect as I can see a few frame hops during Race 2

Race 2:
Inspecting the GPS file, Race 1 Was abandoned, as it had a vang issue.
Appears to have been a .35 Mile Race course which equates to a .30NM Course
Max speed again incorrect due to frame hops.

Good fun.

Might suggest you edit / update your J-Class forum post regarding your yacht for sale ... to add link to your build blog showing photos
