Pornic, France (October 14, 2013) – The Student Yachting World Cup got underway today for the 14 teams, with three windward leeward courses and a coastal race completed. With all teams using identical J/80s, the early leader is the US Naval Academy that is representing the United States.

J World Annapolis has been working with the USNA to support their efforts at the Student Yachting World Cup by allowing the team to train and spar with our fleet of J/80’s and leveraging J World’s extensive knowledge and experience aboard the J/80.  We wish them the best of luck!
