J Class Supporters Add New Website Features
The J Class Supporters’ site and club is run for all those with an interest in the J class yachts. The website has been refreshed with a new design and additional features. Work is ongoing to provide more news and images to the public and more features to supporters.
One interesting new feature is the Fleet Tracker page, showing in real time where the Js are in the world, so long as they have their AIS trackers switched on. It is actually possible to follow the yacht’s track during a race, showing speed and direction.
Velsheda and Shramrock V are competing in the Voiles de St Tropez regatta this week and you can follow Velsheda’s progress using this page. To get a yacht track, click on the yacht and click “Show Vessel’s Track”.
Further features will be added to the website during the Autumn.In addition to the growing popularity of the supporters’ club, the J Class YouTube channel is proving very popular, including a video documentary of Terry Brabant’s Velsheda restoration. With lots of historical footage, the video is well worth watching. You can find it here
For a subscription of £18, supporters get at least four J Class newsletters each year, an A2 poster, 15% off J Class products, access to the supporters’ forum, and an exclusive J Class lapel badge.Visit the supporters site at www.jclasssupporters.com
