J-24

With its breakthrough design and speed, the J-24 quickly became one of the most popular one-design keelboat classes in the world. It is strongly built and easy to sail for 2 to 5 people. We teach Advanced courses on J-24s and use them for our Winter "Frostbite" racing program. They are very popular with Mid-range members for daysailing and occasionally anchoring overnight.
