Last week the inaugural J-Class World Championships were held in the waters of Newport, RI. With stiff competition amongst the different yachts, it was the sole Hall Spars rigged J that came out on top! Not only did she win the worlds, but also the Corinthian trophy (best owner-driver) and the Kohler Cup for best performance over the 2017-season after also winning in Bermuda at the J-Class regatta.
Congratulations from all of us at Hall Spars to her owner, her skipper and the full crew as well as all partners who worked on this project and have kept developing the yacht over the past seven years.
Apart from the mast, boom, jockey- and spinnaker poles on JH1 Lionheart, J8 Topaz has also raced with a #Seamless spinnaker pole from Hall and she managed two race victories!
