Introduction

The newest addition to the J Boats Sport range; the J/11S, was debuted afloat at Southampton Boat Show 2015. Answering demand for sailing without the need to assemble a large crew, the J/11S is a new 36’ (11 meter) double-handed, offshore J/Boat designed to compete in the double-handed IRC circuit in Europe.

Built by J Composites, the J/11S’ roots lie in the high performance hull of the J/111 and is then rating optimised for her length (from IRC 1.096 down to 1.050) with a shorter VCG optimised sail plan, increased stability, a twin rudder/single tiller steering system, and simplified deck and interior plan.

While most designs in this genre are focused on offwind sailing in windy conditions (i.e. max beam carried to the transom), the J/11S provides a versatile performance platform that’s ideally suited for most of the popular double-handed races in Europe and North America, where wind and sea conditions vary widely, and where both upwind and downwind performance matters.

“J/Boat owners have had great success in short-handed offshore racing,” said J Composites president and J/11S project leader Didier LeMoal. “Nearly all our models between 9 and 16 meters have thrived in very demanding events like the double-handed Fastnet, Round Britain and Middle Sea Races.  We’re excited to launch a boat that’s even further optimized for short-handed racing. We based our idea on hull designs which we know to perform well on every point of sail and in all the different conditions. At that point, all we had to do was design a fully dedicated deck layout, so we adopted the solution of a tiller rather than a wheel on this boat, with the notable addition of two rudders so as to simplify the handling for one or two people.”
