I was expecting her to be flighty, even cantankerous, but I couldn't have been more wrong. She was well mannered, graceful and majestic to sail. Pushed to the limit I have no doubt she could bite, but it would be a braver man than me to go that far. The helm wasn't as harsh as I expected, instead being light and responsive.

Has racing-orientated J Boats produced a yacht that will appeal to cruisers?

What's she like to sail? Cruising sailors think of racing yachts as being nothing more than stripped-out hulls - crammed with pipe cots, sweaty gorillas and soggy sails - which can't go very far. Thankfully in the case of the J/122E this couldn't be further from the truth. Many of the original versions have competed in events such as the ARC or AZAB.
