(Alameda, CA)- Be sure to mark your calendar this week as a reminder of what to do next weekend! Come one, come all!  J/Boats San Francisco dealer “Sail California” will be hosting a small navy of J’s both on display and in the water at the Strictly Sail Boat Show, running from April 10-13 at Jack London Square in Oakland, CA.  On display will be the J/111, their brand new J/88, and two J70's (one on land, one in the water).

Momentum continues to grow for the J/Clan in the San Francisco Bay area.  With a great tradition of strong one-design fleets with plenty of fun-loving people aboard them, it’s no wonder the J/105 and J/120 classes on the Bay continue to enjoy great sailing and fresh faces joining the ranks all the time.

J/111s starting- sailing off ChicagoThe latest one-design fleets to develop on the Bay are the J/70 and J/111.  The J/70s are up to two dozen boats and have an active one-design regatta circuit.  And, the J/111s are approaching a “baker’s dozen” soon, with the class slated to participate in this year’s Rolex Big Boat Series in September.

Strictly Sail is the West Coast’s largest original all-sail boat show. Whether you are a “newbie” or a seasoned sailor, this four day sailing spectacular is the place to immerse yourself in the world of sailing, check out new sailboats, talk to experts, participate in hands-on seminars, get on the water and have fun.  Be sure to contact any of Sail California’s J experts- Pat Nolan, Norm Davant, or Drew Harper- call ph# 510-523-8500 or email-   Sailing Photo credit- Meredith Block/  For more Strictly Sail show information
