The J/70 Class
The UK J/70 fleet is the largest one design fleet racing regularly on the Solent, with 35+ boats at the Class Nationals this year. The sportsboat is a 4-5 man One Design class making for some of the closest racing on the Solent and provides a full and intense calendar with events from March through to as late as October/November. With the 2019 J/70 World Championships being held in the UK, the fleet is continually growing and become even more competitive.
The Royal Southern is proud to own three J/70s, which are available to be used by all Club members with suitable experience. The boats can be chartered for training or racing and come with all the necessary equipment.

The deposit will then be refunded to you once the boat has been checked over by the Bosun, Sailing Secretary or Berthing Manager with a reduction for any damage done.
