J Class Boats Impress in Palma

Superyacht Cup Palma

Excerpted from Superyacht Cup Palma web site:

It goes without saying that the “cream on the cake” was to see 5 of the magnificent J Class Yachts fleet racing with a mix of windward leeward and coastal courses for the first time in the Med, with the hopes that this will see the beginnings of a growing class of these unique and historical yachts. It’s exciting times, competition is tough and the calibre of crew is impressive “it’s the who’s who of yachting”, commented Jerry Kirby sailing aboard Hanuman, “we have the best sailors in the world right here right now.” Even with a fairly even playing field, it was Hanuman who took three bullets this week showing that the boat is quick and certainly “has legs”. Jim Clark, the owner of Hanuman, extended his thanks to the owners of Velsheda and Ranger for having the vision to create the competitive J Class fleet that we see today.
