The J-22 is my boat of choice. The Santana 20 is also a great suggestion. My dad had #5, great boat.J-22, J-24, Santana 20. Keep in mind, these are sailboats, not summer cottages. (Which is to say Not luxury travel trailers on “keels.”)OM
Any additional criteria other than that? If not, J/22 or J/80 fit the bill.A boat that makes me smile going upwind. Recommendations are very much appreciated.
We called them 'Micro tonners' here in Aus. The JOG fleet was huge back in the day. I owned a Admiral 21 that we did 220 hundred mile offshore races in. When we finished one race a couple of guys that we knew sailing on the Maxi Apollo can over to have a beer with us and after looking down below one said 'if you sentenced criminals to live in that thing there would be outrage.'Yes - they were called Mini-Tonners
