America's Cup J-Class Regatta

The Wolfson Unit has supported the J-Class Association in the development, implementation and refinement of a J-Class specific rating rule which has been used at J-Class regattas since 2011, culminating at this year’s America’s Cup J-Class Regatta in Bermuda.

This rating system uses Wolfson Unit expertise in yacht stability assessment and velocity performance prediction (VPP) tools to estimate the performance of each yacht across a range of wind speeds, angles and courses, in order to create time correction factors.
