NEW J/70 JIB DEBUTS WITH TWO CLEAN SWEEPS
1,2,3 at the NOOD Regatta in Marblehead and 1,2,3,4 at the Corinthian Nationals Powered by the New J-6 Jib
From light to heavy conditions, the new J-6 jib has been tested and proven to hold its own as the leading tool for all-purpose abilities.
The top 3 teams at the NOOD Regatta in Marblehead: John Baxter’s Team Vineyard Vines, Bruno Pasquinelli’s Stampede, and Brian Keane’s Savasana used the new J-6 jib and showed excellent speed.
“The J/6 is sweet!” said John Baxter, winner at the Marblehead NOOD Regatta.
The story was no different than the report from Buzzards Bay last week where 28 teams competed at the J/70 Corinthian Nationals. The top 4 boats on the scoreboard were also using the powerful J-6 high-clew jib. Brian Keane and his team on Savasana took the title with four bullets.
“We are very pleased with the new J-6 headsail from North Sails. We believe it is highly versatile, balanced, and allows for aggressive weather sheeting.” –Brian Keane, owner-driver of J/70 Savasana and winner of the 2017 Corinthian Nationals.
The North Sails new high-clew jib, optimized for more in-hauling cross-sheeting abilities across the cabin-top, has proven to be the best choice for the J/70.
“It is great to see our clients testing our new products and winning the events. We were 100% confident in the performance of the J-6 jib when we released it. These results prove that there is no better all-purpose jib in the market for the J/70 class and we highly recommend it for the Worlds.” – Tim Healy, North Sails One Design President and J/70 World champion.
