True sailing afficionados view J-Class yachts, the exquisite and extremely fast boats built to compete in the America's Cup in the 1930s, as the epitome of achievement in design and sailing. German publisher Delius Klasing and photographer Franco Pace have recently released the gorgeous photo book entitled ’J-Class,’ which features seven of the original ten yachts ever built among its pages. Accompanied by text from sailing and J-Class expert Wiel Verlinden, your journey includes details on the elegant regattas where may J-Class yachts compete today. Available now on Amazon.
