    J Class Racing Returning to the Bucket 2020

    "the J Class will convene in Antigua in March 2020 for the Superyacht Challenge there, followed by participation as a class in the popular St Barths Bucket... At least five J's are expected to then sail to New Zealand (site of the 2021 America's Cup) through the Panama Canal and across the Pacific."

    Bucket 2020 dates are March 19-22.

    With some disarray in the J Class that the press release kinda mentions, Velsheda was the only J in the 2019 Bucket:

    Two photos that you posted (12/31/09) showing J Class yacht Hanuman sailing in heavy weather during the New Years Eve Regatta. In Hindu mythology, one of Hanuman's greatest feats was moving a mountain (literally) to deliver a healing herb to an injured warrior... hoping for a similar delivery to the photographer...
