Cowes Combined Clubs grant fleet status to J/109 class at Cowes Week 21/3/06

With the prospect of between 20-25 teams signing up for this year’s Skandia Cowes Week, Cowes Combined Clubs have agreed to provide a class start for the J/109.

The other J Boats competing at Cowes week this year, the J/90, J/92, J/92 S, J/105, J/110 and the J/120 will race in the J-Sprit Class on specially set courses. However, the 41 foot J/125 and the 43 foot J/133s will line up against other similarly sized boats in the IRC classes, and the J/80s will race once again in the mixed Sportsboat Class. Last year the top three slots in the Sportsboat Class at Cowes were filled by J/80s.
