VIDEO: J Class racing at the St. Barths Bucket

Published on May 14th, 2013

“I was asked by the J Class association to film the five J Class sloops racing during the St.Barths Bucket this past winter. This was a historic event for the class as they had not had so many J’s race together in decades. A J class yacht is roughly 140 ft long, has a mast height of about 170ft and takes a crew of 30 to push these 150 ton yachts around the track. It was quite a sight to see these boats racing together off St.Barths.” – Onne van der Wal
