    J-111 DJINN / Belgian Boys HELLO!

    Need to check one design rules for keel and hull fairing as our skipper was not allowed to change to flush seacocks or to fair them in. Spi Ouest is great regatta. Practice partying as much as sailing!

    Do J-sprits (Bow-sprits) ever snap?

    UK & Ireland - 100 109s, 25 105s. 109 designed for IRC, 105 struggles. Basically weight to length ratio. 109 is approx 2 tonnes heavier and only 24cm longer. 105 loads of fun in breeze, 109 needs a bit more practice to gybe. secondhand - approx 50-60k for 105, 100-150k 109. Sailed both...

    Do J-sprits (Bow-sprits) ever snap?

    Sailed both boats in addition to many others. Agree if no one design that the J/109 would be my choice although the 105 is a lot of fun. With regard to sprits we have had kites up on both boats in 40+knots and pole was fine. In less extreme conditions we have had some spectacular broaches...

    Sounds like Blur had fun and they would certainly get the best out of the J/111. Spoke with J-Dream about their weight requirement. As they are racing IRC they believe that another 2 people on the rail would be beneficial, as it is to most boats. They sail with some little people, apparently...

    J/111 IRC TCC

    not newbie just had to reregister, as so long since i bothered to use this site due to the abuse given to people who all share the same interest! PHRF only seems to take account of how well boats are sailed not what sails they use. Can this really be true? If it is, why do they not adopt IRC...

    Could someone please advise whether PHRF is as penal on mainsail girth measurements as IRC seems to be?

    used J/111

    They are coming to Key West and it costs more to ship a boat both ways from the UK than the depreciation. They have had a successful season finishing 2nd in RORC Overall for 2011. She was at Southampton Boat Show and looked good. She certainly attracted the crowds attention.

    The Sobstad kites are not as full across the head - full stop. The North Sails kite allows the J/109 to run deep. If you can handle the A2 not sure why you would put up anything else? Don't broach! Kicker a really important job and playing the main can also be a saviour.

    They only wear it to prizegivings but at least they are fun rather than boring colours! The green was an interesting choice which they wore at the Nationals!

    Suspect they did not fly it on the last run of the Nationals because they only had an A2 left having blown up a heavy kite the day before and they were so far in front.........

    There is a nano second when you can tell the boat is about to broach. Play the kicker and the main, ease the kite and you can usually recover it. Difficult when 2-handed! She goes dead downwind with white sails and in high 20knots it is quicker than with the kite if you have to gybe. Tried...
