Re: San Juan 24

Is there a set of polars to look at for racing downwind?

Zach, congrats on your new boat.

Unless there is an owenrs association, we have found that Google is the best way to find info, although you may have to wade through a lot of hits to find what you're looking for.

Most boats aren't much different and unless there's something specific about a particular model (i.e., rotten mast supports that are hidden from view), repairs are same old, same old between any boats.

Don Casey's Good Old Boat (2nd edition - much cheaper than the newer one) is one of the best overall books I've found, although his stuff on electrical is sadly dated and in some cases wrong.

Almost all boats will do ddw slower than gybing downwind. I've found polars to be more a guide than any absolutes. And the pinched stern IOR boats have always been known to be squirrely downwind. Good luck.

Re: San Juan 24

I race a SJ24 and they are a lot of fun. We run an asym for a kite that works very well but trying to go deep with it makes it a handful . We have corrected out in front of SC27s and J boats on a upwind course. Really points well due to some modifications.

Highly recommended!
