Manufacturer Provided Description
J-80 combines ease of handling and great stability with speed, the elusive goal in an easily trailed monohull. J-80 (80 decimeters) was designed with the security and reliability of a fixed lead keel of moderate draft. That ballast is made more effective by J-80's low center of gravity, thanks to a strong, light hull and deck built with a TPI-patented, vacuum resin infusion process achieving 60-70 per cent glass content and precise weight control. You can be sailing in three minutes. Take off the boom cover and hoist the main. It's already attached to the mast with slides. Cast off. J-80 goes faster under main alone than other boats her size under full canvas. Want more speed Uncleat the Harken roller furler control line, and trim the jib sheet. The jib unrolls and J-80 leaps into Mach II performance. Ready for Mach III Without leaving the cockpit, pull the green launch control line for the carbon sprit and it drags the lower front corner of the spinnaker out with it. Hoist, then trim the spinnaker. You're off planing in only 15 knots of wind. To jibe, simply let off one spinnaker sheet and pull in the other. Both are attached to the same aft corner like a genoa. The spinnaker flows between the rolled jib and its own leading edge. Whether it's blowing 5 knots or 25, two people can fly J-80 asymmetric spinnaker with greater control and speed than four people might have flown the old style. To encourage ownership and participation in J-80 events by all sailors, J-80 Class Rules are written to keep the fun up and costs down. J-80 Class Rules, when racing one-design, specify a three sail limitation: Dacron mainsail on slides, 100 per cent roller furling Mylar jib and 0.6 ounce asymmetric spinnaker. Sails must remain stored on the roller furler and boom at night. The crew weight limit is three people of any weight, or 715 pounds if there are four or more people aboard. With many J-80 one-design events during 1993 and the initial 80 boats going to 11 nations, J-80 is well on its way to becoming an international class. Trailering to class events is as easy as with a J-24. J-80 weighs less, fits U.S. & European legal towing widths, and rides high enough on a trailer so as not to obstruct rear-view visibility.
