Speed Is Important. The key ingredient to sustaining enthusiasm of all ages is very often missing in cruising boats. A J/30 sails at the speed of 35 to 40 footers and will be ahead of the average 30-foot cruiser by the length of a football field after a mile of sailing. Such performance means that 40 to 50 mile daily runs are easy. Speed in light air and pointing ability also mean less engine time and more sailing.
Formerly named "Sea Biscuit" she was National Champion at the J-30 National Championships twice, in 1997 and 2000. As well as runner-up in 1994 and 1995. More recently she has ruled the roost at both the St. Michaels and Annapolis, MD boat races.
The J/30 performs under mainsail alone better than most 30-foot cruisers under full sail. This comes in handy getting through storms or crowded harbors or for relaxed picnic sails. There are few boats that will surf downwind in strong winds under spinnaker with better control.
