About International J/70 Class Association
The J/70 Speedster is J/Boats’ first ramp-launchable, keelboat – designed to fulfill the need for an easy-to-own, high performance one-design that’s exciting to sail, stable enough for the entire family, and easy to tow, rig, launch and sail. Since its introduction in 2012, the J/70 has become the most prolific sportboat in the world. The J/70 Class Association is a dynamic owner-based organization with professional management that oversees an active regional, continental and world sailing calendar with special recognition of its Open, Corinthian, Women and Youth Champions.
