Find out why hundreds of J/109 sailors simply "love" their boats. Perhaps one of the best racer/cruisers J/Boats ever built? History and time will tell. The record so far speaks for itself. Well-sailed, the J/109 is difficult to beat under any handicap system- PHRF, IRC, ORC/ORR. In One-Design sailing, you simply learn how to sail faster, you have no limit to how well you can do. So, when you do go handicap sailing, practice pays!
