J-Class Hanuman in Newport

Beautiful new J-Class yacht K6 Hanuman (Endeavour II replica) sails off Newport at the time of the 12-Meter Worlds in September. The original Endeavour II was defeated in the America's Cup in 1937 by Ranger, which has also been replicated recently.

Link here to learn more about the Hanuman and the other Js now sailing or being built or planned. There may be as many as 10 of these stunning J-Class yachts sailing in a few years.
