Our J/109 inventory is optimized for class racing, but we are also continually refining our sails for handicap racing. Because of the unique racer/cruiser qualities of the J/109, owner use their boats differently. Some will only race, others will mix weeknight racing with weekend cruising, and many use their J/109 as a high performance cruising boat. Our inventory is designed to accommodate all uses.
The J/109 MNi-5 Mainsail is easy to trim and will hold its fast shape even when the wind increases. 3Di RAW is a new purpose-built 3D composite sail. Its dedicated tape layout was developed to best match 3Di technology and properties to smaller boats and lower dpi. The result is a wider wind range, a more supple feel, and a more...
Wind range: 15+ knots
The J/109 HAi-5 is a heavy air jib. It is flatter in shape than the APi-6 which allows the boat to stay on its feet in heavier breeze and accelerate, instead of heeling and sliding sideways. Since the sail is full size, it will still have enough power for windy but lumpy conditions. Paired with a big genoa, this is...
Wind range: 0-14 knots
The APGi-1 is 145% genoa optimized for IRC/PHRF. It's based on our very successful English design, perfect for J/109 owners who like handicap racing and point-to-point events. If you race in under 14 knots of wind most of the time, or if you want better reaching performance, this sail is for you.
Wind range: 0-16 knots
The J/109 APi-6 Jib offers plenty of power in light air and the shape can be adjusted easily by changing the halyard and backstay tension as the wind increases. Its sail geometry is optimized so the sail can be in-hauled for a tight sheeting angle. The J/109 APi-6 Jib is designed for winds 0-16 knots.
Wind range: 0-10 knots
Sailing the J/109 in 8-10 TWS can be tough downwind. It’s not really windy enough to sail the really deep angles the boat likes, and if it’s lumpy, it gets even harder. The A1.5-2 Asymmetric was developed from designs used on bigger Grand Prix boats such as the TP52s. The concept was to build a sail that would be fast...
Wind range: 18+ knots
The A4-1 Asymmetric isn't just a heavier version of the A2, its shape and geometry are optimized for sailing in breeze over 18 knots TWS. The A4-1 Asymmetric is more stable and easier to trim and gybe in heavier breeze. It is designed to keep the tack down while still projecting out to windward, which makes it easier to keep...
