Today would have been a great day to be there.  The six J Class boats raced today, and seeing all six of them in the same place would have been a treat.  From the Bucket website:

This marks the first time that six of the J Class yachts have lined up together since the 1930s when they famously sailed for the America’s Cup. Shamrock V (J3) is the first J ever built, and Velsheda (J7) is an original as well, while the balance of the fleet – Hanuman (J6), Lionheart (J1), Ranger (J5) and Topaz (J8) – are replicas built to original drawings.

Nice blog post, nice photos, but the blog post is either a year out of date, or the blogger didn't realize that there was no Transat AG2R this year - it's every other year.  I'll be there for the expected finish dates at the latter part of April 2018, when the race is next run.
