Amateur Initiative in J/70 Class:
When the J/70 class was launched in 2012, it was discussed whether the rules should include limitations on professional sailors. The class decided, in the interest of growth, that all were welcome, which opened the door to both industry pros and ‘pay to sail’ pros.
While class growth has been significant, so has the impact of pro crew. With success in the class now intrinsically connected to hiring professional sailors, the class leaders have launched a more amateur initiative.

This greenish mustard laser georgette saree with mirror work is enough to evoke the enthusiasm in any party. Using big mirrors with sequins and a contrasting red thread is some fresh imagination. The saree is accompanied by a matching blouse material that has the same work as found in the saree. The shisha or glass work has been diligently used in the saree with rich experience. Glass work is very prevalent in Indian textile industry for a very long time. In this saree, it has been used over a greenish mustard shade. The size of the glass work and the red thread used for the purpose add to the charm of the saree.
Two sizes of glass circles have been used. The bigger one is neatly arranged by the border and sprinkled considerably throughout the saree. While the bigger mirrors are done with red threads, the smaller ones use white threads to fasten themselves to the saree. Avoiding a separate pattern for the pallu, seems to be an intelligent decision to keep the whole saree balanced. The blouse material could have a v neck in the front and square neck in the back. Since they too have glass work on them, they enhance the charm of the saree.
Using greenish mustard accessories would look subtle and sober with the saree. Greenish mustard handbag and flat slippers of the same colours would be apt if you are the calm and reserved type. Suppose you are gregarious and enthusiastic, red accessories or white accessories would reflect your mood. Women of any height or complexion could find themselves comfortable in this saree. Studded bangles would be fine with the saree, preferably diamonds on platinum base. Birthday parties and festivals are splendid reasons to find one draped in this saree. The saree is easy to drape and move around with in spite of the mirror work. The mirror has been attached to the textile in a sturdy and enduring manner.
