Jib Fine Tune
J70 Jib Halyard Fine Tune
The Jib Halyard Fine Tune on a J70 adds a crucial element to your upwind settings.The system uses a 4:1 purchase led through a swivel cleat attached to the mast. With this system, the luff tension on your J70 Jib can be adjusted quickly through the puffs. Set your halyard at the minimum setting for the lulls. As the breeze increases in the puffs, add tension to the luff to help bring the draft forward in the sail, as well as give you a better angle of attack against the wind. The ability to constantly change gears will give you the edge you need to excel in the J70.
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.
