History of this model:
Commissioned in 1933, Franck Murdock was responsible for many innovations in the equipment of the sailboat, such as instruments to measure wind speed and direction.
This J Class was equipped with an incredible series of technical gadgets.
Architecturally, the design was classic and even conventional, but it made a very competitive boat.
Never before had the English come so close to winning the America's Cup in 1934, although faster and more technically advanced than their American competitor Harold Vanderbilt's Rainbow.
The English boat won the first two races. During the third race, a collision occurred.
Charles Edouard Nicholson design. J Class built for Sir T.O.M. Sopwith and launched in 1934 for the America's Cup.
