The Exciting J/88 @ Pacific Sail Boat Show

J/88 sailing upwind (Richmond, CA)- The 2018 Pacific Sailboat Show will be held from April 19-22 at the Marina Bay Yacht Harbor on 1340 Marina Way South in Richmond, CA.  Click here for more boat show information

SAIL California, the J/Boats San Francisco dealer, will have a J/88 in the water at their dock/ booth.  The J/88 hits the sweet spot in J/Boat’s performance sprit range. This mid-size 29 foot family speedster is fast, fun and stable with the security and comfort of a sit-in cockpit, inboard diesel, weekending interior and onboard head. She is small enough to be single-point lifted without having to rely on the boat yard.

Furthermore, J/88 one-design activity continues to blossom across America.  In fact, at Charleston Race Week, nine (9) J/88s will be sailing inside the famous Charleston Harbor, with the equally infamous Fort Sumter as a backdrop (site of the start of the America Civil War) on the fringes of Course Area 3.  Then, later in the summer, the Great Lakes Championship will be from July 28-29 in Youngstown, NY and then two weeks later the J/88 North American Championship will be held from August 10th to 12th at Chicago Yacht Club!
