Resumen del libro

A J-Class yacht is a single-masted racing sailboat, built to the specifications of Nathanael Hereshoff's Universal Rule, the class is considered the peak racers of the era when the Universal Rule determined eligibility in the America's Cup. Nostalgia, fascination and a passion for sailing; the yachts featured in this book were built in the 1930s and have lost none of their magic. In this opulent book Franco Pace gathers together seven of the still-active yachts. The text is written by journalist and well-known expert Wiel Verlinden, who sailed on six of the seven yachts, and presents historical facts about the single classes, going on to discuss future developments. All of the yachts included are illustrated with unique and spectacular pictures. Text in English and German.
