Pros didn’t ruin the J70. The owners that write the checks did. And it’s sure not ruined for all those being paid. I hope that class prospers and people keep paying for pros, might be less of them elsewhere.Yup: RS 21.
Similar in use to Balboa YC's GovCup (bee hive) 22 designed by Alan Andrews but with less sym and possibly wider adaptation.

I've always felt it's a shame the pros ruined the J/70; it had good potential to be a great club boat. On the upside, when the pros move to the next big (or, I guess, little) thing, there should be plenty of decent J/70s for sale. Then, maybe, it can become a great club boat.
