If you are a keen racer that also enjoys to go fast cruising on those lazy weekends away then a J 105 must be considered. These yachts offer class leading performance and are incredibly easy to handle, requiring less crew than other boats of her size. On the race track this boat will out perform a Sydney 36 is almost all conditions and points of sail and with a decent crew will rate and perform equally as well against boats like a Sydney 38, J 111 and Mumm 36's.

"Jumpin Jack Flash" was built in 2001 and has been kept in good condition. The rigging has been replaced inside the last ten years and comes with a large sail wardrobe. This yacht has seen fantastic success in local waters racing with and against the CYCSA and RSAYS. The J 105 has a very competitive edge up and down wind and rates well under IRC.

When your home is near the water, J/105 may be your ideal sailboat. Count up the number of nights spent sleeping aboard and compare that to the number of picnic sails when you would have liked a larger, more comfortable cockpit. J/105 is the answer. Her large cockpit combined with simple 4 berth weekending layout results in two significant owner benefits: (1) A savings of $50,000 in little-used furniture, systems and cabinetry needed for extended cruising, and (2) A boat that's easier to handle, more comfortable in waves and more fun to sail for its size. J/105 has the stability, rig and sail controls to handle 15-20 knot winds without the need of reefing. It has the strength and seaworthiness for ocean going passages.

The Success Story Continues
Introduced in 1991 as the first modern day keel boat with bow-sprit and asymmetric spinnaker, J/105 today is the most successful one-design keel boat class over 30' in the USA with over 680 boats sailing worldwide. The class association is an owner managed organisation 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!

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. There is less to maintain as all the extra
cabinetry and weight of things you won't use aren't there. So instead of varnishing toe-rails and troubleshooting systems you'll be enjoying a sail with friends. With less demands placed on you and your crew J105 is more fun to own..

J-105 Leads the Pack
J/105 is way ahead of the competition when compared with any of the modern 'retro' day-sailors 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 organise a football team of crew to sail!
