Any J24 sailors out here?

I did a quick search of the forums and nothing came up for J24. Any other J24 sailors out here? I'm sure there is.

If a dirty bottom slows you down what do you think it does to your boat

I am (for now)- We moved to Charleston primarily to sail (work is an inevitability, right?), and race as often as possible... not so effectively, however- we're more cruisers at heart. What's up?

A J-what? Nobody sails those fangled race boats around here.

If you aren't sailing a Pacific Islander Crealock Cape Dory Pilot House 47, then you're in the wrong forum pal.

This IS the "racing" forum, right?

yep- even the o.p. hasn't sprung back to life!

I just thought of something that might explain it. I remember reading in Tania Aebi's book, "Maiden Voyage" where she took part in a race at one point in her circumnavigation (on a different boat), and didn't really seem to "catch the bug" for racing... In fact, she even made it fairly clear that she never wanted to, either. I keep seeing her face on ads here on SN, and kinda get the impression that most folks here lean more toward cruising. I'm sort of in the same mentality, but I do like to race. I suck at it, but I'm learning!

That's what pressure drop, sailing anarchy, and the j24 class website are for.

Most of the J24s around here have been converted to IC24s. I've spent some time racing the ICs.

I did one regatta on a J/36 and have raced against it in many races. It does VERY well in the local regattas and seems to have a generous rating. The owner is good but that is one tough boat to beat.
