Fleet Captain: Dan Goldberg
The J/70 is reported to be the “World’s Fastest Growing One Design, Trailerable Speedster.” The keelboat was introduced to the US public less than five years ago and has grown exponentially throughout many parts of the world. The fleet is 1,100 boats strong and is still growing.
The boat is 22.75’ and is exciting to race or can be enjoyed by families for an afternoon sail. It planes in certain conditions and also offers a relatively stable platform with a large cockpit for afternoon family cruises. It has a mainsail, furling jib and an asymmetric spinnaker. We have over 15 boats owned by members at AYC – enough to get their own starting line on Friday nights for the Sunset series. In 2016 we are hosting the 2016 Women’s International Keelboat Championship, the 2016 East Coast J70 Championships, and the 2017 J/70 North Americans.
