J/70 Asia- McConaghy Boats

J/70 China- McConaghy Boats (Xiamen, China)- Jim Johnstone of JMJ Marine in China provides us the following reports on recent J/70 activity in China:

“The J/70's are looking beautiful out of McConaghy Boats in Zhuhai, China.  J/70 Hull 477 Shipped from McConaghy today on its way to Qingdao.  Current production and oJ/70 sailor off Chinarders has the next boat finishing on September 5th.  I look forward to sailing next week with the two Qingdao owners.

The first J/70 was sailing this past weekend with the new owner, John Chapple, with the sailmaker and guests on-board (including J/China dealer Jeppe Mortensen).  For our first sail, we did not have the greatest of weather, but everyone loved the boat!  We’ll be looking for that first 15-25 kt breeze day so we can send along GoPro video and photos of some of the beautiful places we are sailing J/70s in China!
