J/22 Deck Layout

2:1 Jib Cross Sheeting

Add two 29 mm T2 blocks on the clew for a 2:1 purchase. Use Ratchamatic® cheek blocks for free-handed cross sheeting in moderate breeze and the #6 Harken winch when the wind picks up. Total adjustability from the weather rail.



Twin Traveler Line Cleats

Two Harken cam cleats for the traveler control line positioned forward of the traveler allow the helmsman to adjust from either the weather or leeward side.

Class History

The J/22 is a pleasure to own, trailerable and fun to sail. With its easy-to-rig deck stepped mast, crew can get from trailer to sailing in 30 minutes. This weight sensitive boat appeals to all ages and skill levels, with 12 to 15 year old boats routinely winning major championships. Below, two deck layouts help access sheets and control lines so crew can optimize weight placement and avoid movement.
