J-92’s unique version of an America’s Cup asymmetric spinnaker is set from a 5.5-foot retractable, carbon-fiber J-Sprit. Jibing is a snap from the cockpit, with nobody on the foredeck. Simply let out one sheet and pull in the other. The tack remains attached to the sprit at all times. Whether it’s blowing 5 knots or 25, two people can fly J-92’s spinnaker with greater control and speed than four could have done before. J-92 (that’s 92 decimeters, or 30 feet) is a high-performance sailboat that combines the best of racer and cruiser without the drawbacks of either. It combines essential overnight capability and privacy below, comfortable, large cockpit and simplified sailing system of the cruiser, with the response and acceleration of a finely tuned racer. J-92 has an attractive and modern interior with a sense of space and comfort unusual for a 30-foot sailboat with such spectacular sailing qualities. J-92 was designed for family participation. Her great stability and highly efficient systems make it easier to sail with a few people. J-92 Class Rules specify a three sail limitation: Dacron mainsail, 100 per cent roller furling Mylar jib and 0.75 ounce Nylon asymmetric spinnaker. The crew weight limit is four people of any weight, or 880 pounds if five or more people. J-92 also fits into MORC, PHRF and Level 30 events on the regional, national and international level. Here’s a boat which is faster and more economical than IOR 3-4 tonners, designed to the only rule of lasting significance: the sea.
