Anyone got a J/35c brochure? (info wanted!)

Recommended Posts

If anyone has a copy of the J/35c brochure, please could you send me (or post here) a copy of the velocity predictions from in it?  I think it was set out as a table (not a polar diagram).

 

Thank you very much!!

If you email J/boats through their website, they may have one to send you. Years ago I was looking at a J/36 and sent them a note asking if they had any documents they could share and they sent me a couple brochures, a spec sheet, and a line drawing. Can't hurt to try.

A good starting point to figure out the target speeds is to start out with an ORC Speed Guide.

Find a similar config to what you got below, add 4% to most numbers (at least upwind) and then iterate from there.

That would result the following upwind numbers w a big genoa (5-6% faster than those in the brochure).

Yup. To much time and no life :lol:
