INTRODUCING: NEW J/24 CLUB RACER GENOA

Will Welles Explains The Benefits Of The New Design

The new J/24 Club Race Genoa has been designed with local fleet racers in mind. On the water, it is easier to trim and more forgiving at the top end than aramid race jibs, as well as offering improved sail longevity. It is now launched on the J/24 Shop Inventory

“The Club Race Genoa is based on our proven J/24 SD/TH Genoa,” J/24 World Champion and Class Leader Will Welles explains. “Built out of a special cloth, it looks similar to the standard sails and we are calling it the Xi Smoke! With polyester fibres instead of aramid, the new design is geared towards club racers who are looking to get a little more life out of their sail.  For our club race customers who haven’t bought a new sail recently, this is the perfect way to improve results.”

In addition to using more cost-effective materials, the design team took a few steps to further improve the sail’s competitive life. The nature of the overlapping Genoa on the J/24 mast is that the back end of the sails get worn .

Last year, a prototype version of this design helped to fuel Steve Kirkpatrick’s team to victory at Newport’s Fleet 50 season. Two other teams used it to win the 2019 District 2 Championship and Easter Regatta.
