Class History

The J/105 is a family racer/cruiser that combines a simple sailplan, clean deck layout and practical interior, with enough get-up-and-go to suit the most avid competitor. With sustained speeds of over 14 knots, this maneuverable keelboat features cockpit control at its best: an asymmetrical pole-launched chute, double-spreader fractional rig, lots of sail area and a roller furling jib.. The J/105 is optimized for shorthanded sailing; it can easily be cruised by two or raced by three or four. It was selected as Boat of the Year in the Racer/Cruiser category by Sailing World magazine. j105-sailplan.gif

Gross-Trim, Fine-Tune Mainsheet

The divided cascading system runs the powerful fine-tune lead aft, allowing the helmsman to easily optimize sail shape on a light air beat. The gross-trim runs forward to the trimmer for fast mark roundings. To use this efficient system, simply add a 144 swivel base and third-party mainsheet adapter plate to your existing hardware.
