this splendid new book is a detailed account of the development of the J Class yachts, primarily from 1996 when the author first became involved with the rebuild of ‘Velsheda’, and subsequently Secretary of the class, overseeing the rebirth and rebuild of these great yachts, including ‘Rainbow’, ‘Hanuman’, ‘Lionheart’, ‘Ranger’, ‘Shamrock V’ and ‘Velsheda’.
