News Doyle Sails highlights at the 35th America's Cup Superyacht Regatta

18 Jun 2017

The 35th America's Cup Superyacht  & J Class Regatta brought out 13 super yachts and 7 J Class boats for three days of short and simple coastal sailing along the stunning island of Bermuda. We were pleased to see several Doyle Sails participate in these exceptionally special events.

Out of the 7 J Class boats in the race, the legendary J Class boat Shamrock V was the eldest and most darling of them all. Commissioned by Sir Thomas Lipton (Lipton Tea) in 1930 and after several restorations remains the only J boat to never fall under dereliction. Having raced the America's Cup back in 1930 this year's Cup was a sweet reunion to be remembered.
