    J80 PHRF setup

    If you are planing, jib out for sure. if you fall off step, Immediately furl the jib and soak into displacement mode. We have found planning starts at around 16-18 TWS. Be Careful, certain death if you heat up 20 degrees trying to plane and can't. Test it sparingly....

    J80 PHRF setup

    Ditch the 155%. a 135 is just as powerful and you don't backwind the main as easy. Code 0- Waste of time. Barber haul the genny out and you will see similar results and buy an A3 or reaching kite for 90-110 AWA. We played with a max roach mainsail and that proved to be fast. Check you local PHRF board on how hard you are gonna get hit for it. You will need a J70 style flicker and spectra backstay for it to clear.

    J/80 Redux

    Early US boats had a Hall spar that was really bendy. The 1st J Europe boats to hit the US were Hull 397-410 and had sparcraft masts and booms. They brought them in for the Worlds in Newport. I personally like the French hulls a bit better but US boats still can be competitive. With any boat, check the keel sump and bolts. If you are just beer can cruising and racing, I suggest epoxy barrier coat and bottom paint. Also, keep the main on slides on the mast and get a beater jib and sock. 2 minutes off the dock to full sail.

    J33 Stories

    Used to race a J33 called Pirate in Galveston Bay. Owner kept it in bristol condition. Had some good rides and regularly beat on the J35 and other 70 raters.

    Olson 30 vs. Soverel 33

    Splitting hairs. Soverel is more comfy but needs more crew and has runners. Olson I believe sails a bit more loose and rewards dinghy sailors. Hobie 33 beats both in my eyes.
