Designed by J/Boats' Rod Johnstone, the International J/80 is a perfect choice for offshore family racing, as well as for cruising and dinghy sailors transitioning to keelboat competition.
The powerful asymmetrical spinnaker is easy to set and allows this sprit one-design to plane at 15 knots with crew trimming safely from the cockpit. The fixed keel and bulb keeps the boat on its feet and user friendly, particularly going upwind in a chop. A high boom and closed transom are additional safety factors. The J/80 is trailerable and complies with US and European towing widths. Active fleets can be found in the US, France, UK and Sweden.
If you're a J80 owner then you'll love this picture guide telling you which Harken block is used in which location on your J/80 racing boat.
