The J/22 is the smallest of the well-known J/boat fleet of one-design racer-cruisers. Best features: Like the other J/boats, the J/22 is well built and well fitted out (Baltek-cored laminates, Harken deck fittings, Hall spars, etc.). Responsive, fast, and early-planing, built for safety with buoyancy tanks and offshore hatches, she is a very popular round-the-buoys racing class (over 1,200 boats sailing in 61 active fleets in eight countries on three continents). There is a strong class association, with a website on the Internet. Strict one-design rules help reduce the cost of racing. There is a wide choice of used boats in all parts of the U.S. Worst features: Comfort is limited with no cockpit coamings; crew position is generally forward of the cockpit, hanging along the weather rail in anything but very light winds. A hoist (one ton or more) is almost a necessity to launch and retrieve the J/22 from the water. This boat is mainly a day-racer, but can be overnighted successfully. There are berths for four, but if privacy is an issue, we'd recommend one very friendly couple at most.
