J/80 Growth Continues in China

J/80 sailboat- Shanghai Boat Show (Xiamen, China)- With over 100 J/80s already sailing in China, interest in the class is stronger than ever. The recent Shanghai Boat Show (April 7-10) brought current J/80 sailors and prospective owners together checking out the latest boat from Red Dragon Yachts, the J/Boats licensee for Asia.

"We're booked on orders for the next five months," said Liu Hong Yan, General manager at Red Dragon. She added, "Chinese sailors love the J/80 for the same reasons it's been successful elsewhere. It's a terrific all-around boat for training, daysailing and one-design racing, and a perfect fit for the rapidly growing Chinese sailing market."  For more J/80 China sailing information, please contact Jim Johnstone- J/China-
