One-Design Showcase

About the J/105

Introduced in 1991 as the first modern day keelboat with bow-sprit and asymmetric spinnaker, the 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 website, 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.
