Lots of info there. I'm assuming this will be a hit in Europe. Hopefully Americans can see the potential in this boat as well.http://www.batliv.se/2018/07/27/j-boats-presenterar-ny-99-m-bat/
Here’s more info beyond the teaser.
NB - Optional water ballast.
The 11s was just a bit odd, I sailed the first one in the UK and despite the modifications it still felt tippy and lacking in stability upwind. Downwind the combination of the J hull form and twin rudders meant it tracked very straight when sailed on more vmg angles but still felt like it would wash out early when pressed. Jataka had a very respectable result of I think 4th in the transquadra (i could be wrong) and with that being a downhill race it was expected to get a good result. I always thought that if it were campaigned properly with a proper budget then it would be competitive in the English Channel RORC races where Js typically do very well. I expect the 99 to pick up where this boat left off.did the j/11s prove to be a bit of a flop?
i liked the concept, but the idea of a detuned j/111 as opposed to a purpose designed model was a bit of a turnoff.
sounds like the j99 is going to be more like the jpk1010 as opposed to the sunfast3200, despite targeting the same market.
