    If that was their first event with the boat then I’d say they are still learning how to make it go. A J121 is definitely faster than a J111.

    Hull #2 splashed in Riviera Beach this past weekend, soon to be on her way to the Caribbean.

    Had the pleasure of sailing this J121 in Bristol on the 25th. Mostly light winds with an occaisional puff in the double digits, fun to sail, she feels agile and responsive with 6 aboard which makes for plenty of hands to handle the boat, no water ballast used. Two boat testing coming up before the fall chill sets in, looking forward to being aboard boat number 2 for that adventure. Very excited to see how this will play out compared to the previous program on a Farr 42 with 11 crew. A couple of pics courtesy of J Boats while tending the main sail.

    The lower headstay strop is an interesting component. We had ours changed to a 1" shorter version at BIRW, the old one had a bend in it where it comes through the furler base. After installing the new one and then tuning the rig, we discovered the new strop was bending in the same way as the old one thereby loosening off the rig. That meant we were chasing the rig tuning for a few days until the strop acquired the requisite bend. My first time racing a J88, fun boat and met some great people in the fleet at BIRW.
