Sailing for Life in Better Sailboats
Sailing is the ultimate freedom, the experience of being at one with nature and the sea, powered only by the wind and one’s imagination. It’s one of the few “life sports” that offers both a relaxing escape as well as an invigorating challenge. You pick your level of comfort and excitement. Sailing is never the same twice – each time on the water with your sailboat is a unique adventure that can enrich friendships, strengthen family ties, and refresh one’s own sense of well-being. How many other outdoor activities can be shared with three or more family generations? It’s been said there are two types of sailors in the world – the young and the young-at-heart.
What a Difference a J Makes
Fulfilling those sailing dreams starts with finding a sailboat that fits you – whether you aspire to sail close to home, cruise to distant shores, or take up the challenge of competitive sailing. Performance differences between sailboats are greater than differences between golf clubs, tennis rackets, skis or cars. A well-designed sailboat, like a good sports car, is an extension of its owner. It could take years of sailing other boats to learn the difference that good design and quality make to one’s sailing enjoyment. Or, you can save time and take advantage of what we’ve designed into every “J.”
