For many years the EC12’s and Canterbury J’s have enjoyed a friendly rivalry at the Club with both classes claiming their share of victories in club racing. Our Club Commodore made the bold statement one day that "EC12s are the Rolls Royce of model yachts" (even writing an article incorporating this - see under Boats and Gear in the 'General Interest' section), and likened Js to Ladas etc. This has been a source of much merriment at club racing.
Though it looks like an unlikely match, the two classes are to have a friendly Match Race. This fun event will be held on Sunday 7th July, with reserve day 21st July in case the weather is bad. Notice of Race etc are available on the J Class website.
