Golden Age of the Mighty J-Class

Hosted at The Sailing Museum & National Sailing Hall of Fame in Newport, Rhode Island


The America's Cup Hall of Fame cordially invites you to join us for an evening of celebration at The Sailing Museum in honor of the Golden Age of the J Class in the America's Cup.

On June 13th, we will gather to relive the excitement and glamour of one of the most exhilarating periods in America's Cup history. We'll be joined by a group of modern-day J-Class sailors who will share their experiences on board these mighty racing monsters! A combination of vintage and current video will play on the big screens as we kick off the sailing season, so purchase your tickets and join us!

This is an event not to be missed as we delve into the fascinating history of these legendary boats and their crews. It will also be an opportunity to connect with fellow America's Cup enthusiasts, Hall of Fame members, and J-Class sailors amongst the many J-Class-related artifacts and exhibits in The Sailing Museum to reflect on the magical years of the Cup in Newport.

The celebration will take place at The Sailing Museum in Newport, and doors will open at 6:00p. The reception will include open bar, passed hors d'oeuvres, and a fully-stocked raw bar courtesy of McGrath's Catering.
