Re: Interesting Sailboats

The J/105 is one of the most stable boats sailing downwind I steered. I raced a few years at the helm of one. In coastal races up to 200 miles downwind with winds up to 35 knots and I steered with two fingers, completely stable boat, flying over the waves at 16 knots without a single broach.
