The team from J/Boats Australia (Yachtspot) will be displaying the J/121, J/112E and J/70 at the Club Marine Sail Expo, over the weekend of 27-28 April at RPAYC Newport. Also close by, Yachtspot will have access to a J/97E and J/88 on another arm of the marina.

The Sail Expo is the debut showing for the 40ft J/121. The J/121 was designed to sail with less crew and features water ballast and simple sail handling systems within an efficient sleek hull shape with high stability to enable this. The beauty of the J/121 is that she is fully ocean capable, so offers the thrills and adventure of not only ocean racing but also the journey to get to the World's most beautiful locations.

Also on display will be the 36ft J/112E from the Elegance range, the epitome of 'performance cruiser' design for comfort, style and speed.

Plus the inimitable J/70, with representatives from the J/70 Australian Class Association on hand to chat through why they love the J/70 and the benefits this International one-design class can bring to sailors from all ranges of experience, from beginning racers to the most experienced world-class Olympic Medallist.

The Sail Expo is at Royal Prince Alfred Yacht Club, Newport from 10am to 4pm on 27-28 April and admission is free.
