Sailing can be the world’s best family sport. The key is a boat that holds the attention and interest of many types of sailors, young and old. J/80 does it all, with thrilling 15-knot rides under spinnaker or relaxed sunset cruises with mainsail only. SAILING WORLD rated J/80 as easier to handle, less intimidating, safer, and better suited for sailing offshore than other modern sport boats tested. If you would like to expand your sailing horizons with a modern sport boat outside protected harbors and lakes, there’s only one choice: the J/80.
