NEWPORT, RI - SEPTEMBER 30: J/22 World Championship. This is the 30th Anniversary J/22 World Championship regatta held in October 1-5 2013 in Newport, Rhode Island, hosted by Sail Newport with 72 entries sailing. The International J/22 is a popular fixed-keel one-design racing sailboat normally raced with a crew of three or four people (total crew weight is restricted to 275 kg/605 lb). It races with the "class jib," a non-overlapping jib, a mainsail, and a large spinnaker. The boat is capable of planing on reaches and runs. There are over 1,600 J/22's now sailing in 65 active fleets in eighteen countries on three continents. Recognised by the ISAF, the International J/22 Class Association promotes activities and regattas worldwide. There is a very active class web site and association newsletters. For class racing, sails are restricted to only a main, small jib and spinnaker with total crew weight at 605 lb.. According to the builder, "There is no better One-Design value available in a 22' keelboat." The J/22 is used in the USA Women's Match Racing Championship regatta, resulting in the Santa Maria Cup.
According to its builder, "Since its introduction in 1983, the J/22 has blossomed into an International class now with 1,600+ boats sailing in 65 fleets in 18 countries. Over 130 boats sailed in the 2004 World Championship. On the merits of its sailing characteristics, widespread popularity and small crew number (3–4), J/22 continues to be the boat of choice and is selected again for the 2005 Rolex International Women's Keelboat Championship in Annapolis, MD." The J/22 has a comfortable self-bailing cockpit with 7 ft. long seats and room for 4 people in the cabin to escape the rain or cold. J/22 is built for safety with buoyancy tanks and offshore hatches. Her 700 lb. lead keel lowers the center of gravity, creating nearly 1700 foot pounds of righting moment at 90 degrees of heel.
