SHOW #122 J-boats

Conceived for the America's Cup at the height of the affluent 1920s, the J-boats arrived during the Great Depression. They required big budgets to build and enormous crews, so despite being the most advanced sailing yachts yet built, the glorious Js proved too extravagant for their own good. But now they are back. Shirley Robertson heads to Mallorca to race onboard these astonishing racing thoroughbreds. She meets the owners willing to invest, the professional crews struggling to race these vast machines and finds out why they are now more popular than ever.
