|To expand your sailing horizons with a modern sportboat in open waters outside protected harbors and lakes, there's only one choice: J/80. Sailing World magazine rated J/80 as easier to handle, less intimidating, safer and better suited for sailing offshore than other modern sportboats tested.Numbers highlight the reason: The 1440 lb. lead keel with bulb on the J/80 weighs nearly the same as the leading competitor's entire boat. No question. The most important standard when it comes to a forgiving design, family sailing fun and sailing in open waters is stability. Now these assessments have become official.
