Most PHRF sails kits for J/80 include a genoa and jib top. The reason is that they don't need hardware changes violating the OD rule. 

I wonder however of there is anybody out there ignoring the rule and hoisting a flying jib or possibly a code on a J/80. And of so, how does the set up look like?

Hi F,

 

please note that there are minimum 2 different mast suppliers for J/80.

- Sparcraft (extensively used by J France)

- John Mast (I think at least, used by J US)

 

They will most likely have different top pieces.

I want aware of the John Mast version. Only ever heard and seen Sparcraft on J/80. It might have to do with the fact that I'm on that side of the pond B)

most likely does!

I've never seen anything but Sparcraft either. But then I'm at the same place as you

Hall Spars made the rigs for the U.S boats for a while, then Sparcraft (Charleston Spar in the U.S) became the supplier. Apparently AG+ now is the class supplier, though if you buy a replacement rig in the U.S. it will be the Sparcraft section. 

I've never heard of John Mast rigs on J/80's as factory supplied, but maybe there are a few boats out there with replacement rigs from them.
