The Annapolis Sailyard - Annapolis Sailyard
A fun and forgiving performance boat that is easy to sail, J/105 offers low maintenance with a simple layout, has great performance, a large cockpit, predictable handling characteristics and makes no pretences of being a distance cruiser or live-aboard.
The Success Story Continues
Introduced in 1991 as the first modern day keelboat with bow-sprit and asymmetric spinnaker, J/105 today is the most successful one-design keelboat class over 30' in the USA with over 680 boats sailing worldwide. The class association is an owner managed organization with strict one-design rules, a world class web site, and offers the best and most active one-design racing in the USA today.
The class rules include an owner-driver rule, tight restrictions on Category 3 professionals, and annual sail purchase restrictions to keep racing affordable and as Corinthian as modern one-design can be.
In Europe, J/105 has proven to be the double-handed boat of choice for offshore sailors and has won the RORC Yacht of the Year and scored notable double-handed wins in the 2007 Rolex Fastnet Race and the 2007 Rolex Middle Sea Race.
Owners rave about how well the boat sails in even the most extreme of conditions-- Trans-Atlantic Race Winners can attest to its seaworthiness!J/105 Leads the Pack
J/105 is way ahead of the pack when compared with any of the modern 'retro' daysailors in terms of performance, ease of handling, construction, sailing comfort and great looks.
Plus, J/105 offers offshore capability and weekend accommodations for the occasional overnight. The bowsprit and asymmetric spinnaker system make downwind sailing simple for two people and requires fewer crew for racing. No need to organize a football team of crew to sail!
