J/80 One Design - Parts and Rigging

Numbers highlight the reason: The 1,440 lb. lead keel with bulb on the J/80 weighs nearly the same as the leading competitor's entire boat. No question, stability is the most important standard when it comes to a forgiving design, family sailing fun and sailing in open waters. No wonder the J/80 continues to be the fastest growing one-design sportboat class in Europe and America, it's a joy to sail in winds from 5 to 25+ knots!

There are currently 1,500 J/80s sailing in 30 fleets in 12 countries, with large J/80 fleets existing in North America, Europe and China. The J/80 Class and its builders have provided J/80s for women’s and men’s regattas for over 15 years. The J/80 has been used actively in match racing as well; including the BMW Berlin Match Race in Berlin, Germany; the World Match Race Sailing Association event in Le Havre, France; and the China Cup Match Race in Xiamen, China. If you're looking for a great class to get involved in, look no further than the International J/80.


J/80 Backstay System

J/80 Backstay
A double-ended 4:1 purchase makes this split backstay adjustable. As the ring is pulled down, two high-strength wire blocks tighten the backstay by pinching the legs of the bridle together. The system is quick and powerful, and the fixed wires keep the mast tensioned even if the 4:1 is released.

J/80 Mainsheet and Traveler System

J/80 Mainsheet
With two Carbo fiddles and a pendant (yellow) to reduce the mainsheet's length, the 5:1 system is a combination of low weight and high power. The adjustable 75 mm Carbo Ratchamatic's® ratchet instantly engages to carry higher loads, but disengages quickly during mark rounding, jibes and light-air situations. A swivel base allows cleating from any direction

J/80 Mainsheet Traveler
The mainsheet traveler system uses Harken's award-winning CB traveler car. Captive ball bearings are extremely low-friction and enable effortless car cleaning and installation. The double-ended control line has a 2:1 purchase, making the system simple and very fast.
