J/70 Sailing IN China Project!

J/70 SailingIN China(Shenzen, China)- Jim Johnstone continues to develop the J/Boats program in China, potentially the world’s largest sailing market with 1.5 billion people who basically all live within an hour of hundreds of lakes suitable for sailing.

Jimmy commented, “here are photos of our new sailing school in Shanghai that is using J/70s. SAILING IN is the only performance sailing school in China and we are currently working on expansion to Shenzhen and Xiamen where we J/70 SailingIN off Chinawill have new fleets of J/70's and J/80's to work with.

The school has also taken students to many different Chinese events including a distance race around Hainan Island on a 50-footer to the Mayor’s Cup in Qingdao racing across the Straits to Korea. Currently, we have won those events we have participated in, which is exciting for our Chinese students!

Our next student event is racing the Kings Cup in Phuket on TRADER and Langkawi Race week after that.”
