Backstay System

J70 Backstay Bridle

The soft backstay used by the J70 allows for minimal weight aloft. The backstay uses 6mm dyneema single braid spliced onto a low friction ring. The backstay bridle is also a 6mm dyneema line with a sling splice and ball. This allows the backstay to be adjusted in varying wind conditions. As the wind increases, the bridle should be tensioned to remove any excess slack. The backstay is controlled using a triple configuration of Harken 29mm T2 Blocks, all tied together. The line is led to the deck through a 29mm fixed block and through a 29mm cheek block. The control line terminates through a micro cam cleat with fairlead.

J70: Fast and Fun Sailing for Everyone

The J70 introduces a new dimension of fun, fast sailing in a stable, easy to own boat. The J70's 22-foot long waterline with high aspect, all carbon rig and deep, lifting bulb keel provides spirited performance and good stability. The J70 is designed to fulfill the needs of a diverse range of sailors—from performance one-design and club racers, to sailing families. The large cockpit comfortably holds three adults or four mixed crew, and the vertical lifting keel makes trailering and launching the J70 a snap.

Knifing through the water upwind with confidence and ease, the J70 has that legendary “J” feel - light, controllable with a wide-groove to sail consistently fast. With an adjustable cascading backstay, one has total control over sail shape and dynamic rig tension across the full range of conditions, making it easy to change gears on the J70.

Since its launch in 2012, the popularity of the J70 has soared, with growing fleets and regatta action worldwide. Superbly built by CCF Composites, Bristol, R. I., the J70 was named 2013 Boat of the Year by Sailing World Magazine.

At Mauri Pro we have a range of parts, running rigging, sailing gear, and accessories that will help keep your J70 in top racing condition.
