John is an East Coast Sailor, has been a keen windsurfer and dingy sailor in his younger years and has been solo cruising and delivering yachts for twenty years. He’s now sixty, competed in the last AZAB 2015 double handed on a Scanyacht 391 as a charity fund-raiser, which he enjoyed immensely, last year he competed in the Solofastnet 2018 on a different yacht as a qualifier for this AZAB 2019, the sailing was great and really enjoyed it. Jachoby is a Contessa 35 built by Jeremy Rogers and designed by the late Doug Petterson, it has a great pedigree from the 1970-80s. She may look a bit scruffy for her age but is a seriously well built yacht.
