When people talk about solo racers normally it is implied that they are Ocean racers and that means Transat or circumnavigation in the trade winds. None of the Jboats would be very good at it but then the Fastnet is not on the trade windsneither a long race and has at least is half upwind things can be quite different.

On another class (3 if I am not mistaken) a J120 is also making a hell of a race but that is also a great crew that fights for overall leadership on the IRC championship. Great old boat anyway.
