Another J/80 joins the Irish fleet

With the class association only set up since this October, the Irish J/80 Class have been added to again, this time by Philip Watson and Roger Cagney who have purchased the latest boat to join the fleet.

Boat number #798 is already in Philip’s premesis in Malahide and the northside sailmaker was quick to announce the deal today following some weeks of speculation ‘the rumour factory was right…, Roger and I have bought the boat and it’s around in the loft now’. He added ‘Looking forward to some gentlemen’s racing!’

With about 5 more teams in the hunt for boats, it would appear that the class will be well supported for next year’s national championships at the Sportsboat Cup in Howth this coming May.
