    J/105 ORC CERTIFICATE

    We are also using no class sails. What we would like to know is How can optimize the boat for that rules. Also what sails and measurements are you using for the best performance. We have done some improvements: - Barber inhauler - Jib car system like the J99 - Bobstay for code zero - 95m2 assymetric We are thinking about: - Remove furler and put a jib with soft hanks and 29 m2 - remove backstay hidraulic and use a cascade system and a flicker. Also thinking about a squaretop main to use 36 m2 of main any more options??? We have problems in light winds but we dont want to use a 155 genoa

    J105 PROPELLER

    I think I will buy a GORI PROPELLER. Is it enough to buy the folding one or I have to buy the racing one?

    J105 light winds

    I sail RI rating. Similar of IRC so I don't need to use OD sails. Next time I will try 35 meters genoa or a jib 26 meters.

    J105 light winds

    Can someone help me about sailing in light winds? I have raced this sundays for the first time in really light winds. Configuration was jib 24 mts ans main 32 meters. The boat was not working at all. I also have a 150 genoa 35 meters and a bigger jib 26 meters. Can somebody tell me if 26 mts could be enought? the boat in 10 knots of breeze is really fast but in light winds (5knots) does not work at all. the circuit was a triangle and in that breeze the A2 does not work on the downwing length. The second round I tried to put the masthead halyard and it worked.

    J105 big asymetric

    Hi everybody! last weekend we did our first race in our J105. We race in RI. We were lucky to win the two races agaist 25 boats and we are so happy, but also have seen we can inprove a lot and I have some questions that I would like to know your opinion. it is better to sail with a bigger asymetric? Does anybody know wich are the best measurements? We normaly sail windward/leeward. is it a bood option use a spinaker pool and a symmetric spinnaker? what about code zero? I have a code zero and a code two with 67 meters and 54. The boat goes really fast when I use that sails but the question is. The extensible pool is strong enough or is better to do a new bowsprit for that? also would like to know i the asymetric from j109 will work on a J105. Mine has a masthead halyard. thanks to everybody!
