The J Class Regatta in the America’s Cup is almost reaching its climax and the race for the top position in the event is getting hotter.
The Hanuman J class fleet is leading the pack by a whisker. The final day is just around the corner and it will be held at Murray’s Anchorage. It will be a six-part race series.
There is just one point separating the top three J Class fleet. The 42 meter J class Hanuman yacht is in the first position among the seven fleets taking part in the final series of races. Hanuman was built in 1937 and was first christened as Endeavor II. It took part in the ‘Auld Mug’ event that same year.
Hanuman is on a roll at the America’s Cup. It finished day one with the same points of Ranger fleet. Now, it has got to the first position of the leaderboard after winning the final and the last race. Hanuman enjoyed a score of 2-4-1 whereas its archrival Ranger had a final score of 3-2-2. It is going to be a really tough final day. The third position is now with Lionheart with a score of 1-3-4. The irony is that only one point separates the top three.
The Hanuman crew is looking to claim their second title of the year. They have already won the St Barths Bucket after getting the better of Velsheda. The fourth and fifth position of the America’s Cup J Class regatta is with Velsheda and Topaz respectively.
The new member of the J Class racing, Svea, is sitting in the sixth position after a tough day in the final race. The J Class yachts have been competing in the America’s Cup since 1930. It is regarded to be one of the most famous and majestic yachts to take part in the competition.
