The J/22 is the junior member of the J/Boats family. The boats, currently built in USA, South Africa and Italy, are built in a balsa core sandwich construction giving a very stiff and durable boat. The sheer and bow lines give a good performance&sailing in waves. The hull combined with an amble mainsail, a sensibly sized jib, a big spinnaker and light weight of 857 kgs gives a keelboat which responds like a ballerina.
