    I used to own a J105, pointing with our 99 is for sure higher in light and medium air. in heavy air is always difficult to judge the boat itself. Going down wind is about the same as j105 but feeling is to go slower.... (height on deck and weight maybe)... No clew against j109.

    As owner of a 99 I Fully agree with you : > my previous boat was a J105 > J99 is a jpk 10,10 copy ( some aspects are even not as good as ex : no liferaft space, main-sheet messy ) >BUT I would not have made that change to get a SF 3300 or Jpk 10.30 which are more in line with Figaro II / III those are little too extreme and belong more to pure professional racer than family speedster. j99 is kind of a classic boat

    Hello mine is hull 14. bowsprit is broken. At first cracks appeared at the extremity. It has been repaired by local dealer but after one week-end racing, the bolts fixing the sprit into the side of the bow have delaminated the carbon. I m waiting for service from J-composites. I ll let you know. Anybody owning a j-99 with those issues ?

    What do you mean by steering a bit to restricted ? I see also that your bowsprit is slightly modified... any closer photo ? thanks

    Hello J99's owners any trouble with the bowsprit ? Mine has some crack also it has been lightly used. What about you ? Is the "tack plate" attached the same way on yours? I'm hull #14.

    Well I've ordered my sails ( X voiles) last week and we try to do the same exercise (no torsion cable) with a Code 5 . They did some test on the new Bfigaro3 (attached). seems efficient and not too hard to roll. Hope that the luff will be round and ease enough to fly windward ... that seems to be the case on the NorthSail one. Any idea of wind angle/ wind speed ?

    Hello JL92S. Please could you tell me more about the supposed code zero I see on the picture ? I'm waiting for my j99 in June and have not made decision on the sail inventory. Thanks
