The NEW 40' Off­shore Speed­ster with Less Crew

Sailing World - - Contents -

The new J/121 is a 40' off­shore speed­ster that can be day raced or dis­tance sailed by just 5 or fewer crew…. the best short- handed J ever…. ca­pa­ble of win­ning on any race track while also ex­celling as the fam­ily week­ender. Here’s a boat, class and pro­gram that re­de­fines sail­boat rac­ing as a recre­ation and shared ad­ven­ture with friends, re­duc­ing the fo­cus on spe­cial­iza­tion and ath­letic W/ L rac­ing. The J/121 ful­fills the grow­ing need to sim­plify life and re­con­nect with those you re­ally want to sail with on a boat that’s pure magic to sail.

Cre­at­ing the best short­handed J ever starts with a hull shape that ex­cels on all points of sail, par­tic­u­larly reach­ing. Most dis­tance race clas­sics have a beat/reach/run ra­tio around 15%/60%/25%. Straight- line speed is the name of the game and is achieved on the J/121 by hav­ing a low drag, ef­fi­cient hull with high form sta­bil­ity and ex­cep­tional bal­ance. Add to this a highly en­gi­neered car­bon rig pack­age, an L-shaped low VCG keel, in­fused com­pos­ite con­struc­tion, and a wa­ter­bal­last as­sist sys­tem that adds nearly 400 kilos (4 big guys) of crew weight to the rail and you have the J/121.
