  • About the Project

    These classic yachts were used in competition for the Americas Cup from the 1930s until the mid-1950s and have recently experienced a revival, being raced once again by many of the worlds top professional sailors at events around the world. 

     The J Class yachts have benefited from the quantum leap made in sail, mast and rigging technology over the last 70 years and are now high-performing race yachts, many of which feature comfortable cruising interiors. 

    Future Fibres has supplied a complete set of ECsix to most of the J Class yachts, including Topaz, Hanuman, Ranger and Rainbow. Whilst in 2019, the J Class yachts Svea and Velsheda were fitted with our latest solid carbon technology, AEROrazr
