J/105 Racing

The J/105, a versatile 34’ racer/crusier/daysailer, has enjoyed immense success for a boat of its size. Since its debut in 1991, more than 720 hulls have been built. While the J/105 is easy for anyone to sail, one-design racing is its ‘bread and butter’. Seattle is home to a very active J/105 fleet. We have three 105s in the SSC fleet. It was thrilling to reintroduce this program in 2010, and we can’t wait for the following summers. The possibilities for fun, learning, and competition are boundless.
