During the two weeks the new J/112E sports cruiser was sailing in Narragansett Bay, we had an opportunity to sail her in a wide range of conditions, 8-12 kt winds from the northwest, to big chop and plenty of breeze gusting into the 25 kts range.
V-shaped bow sections provide superior directional stability and reduced slamming in waves. Plus, her freeboard forward and topside flare help to keep the deck dry. The long waterline combined with a low vertical center of gravity results in a smooth, sea-kindly motion – more like that of a 40 footer. And, with the asymmetric spinnaker flying, she pops onto a plane and leaves a smooth trail of foam in her wake, hitting upwards of 12.7 kts on a broad 150 TWA reach.
