Sails: Quantum Mainsail, No2 genoa and No3 jib in Fusion M Aramid Laminate in 2010. The genoa is very little used, as is the mainsail, with less than 6 weeks use. The No3 is more used but only in last 2 years. The North 3DL 2004 mainsail is still very useable. There are two cruising Kemp mainsails 2007 and 2012, both very useable and strong and the septuagenarian owner now only uses the 3 reef white mainsail as it does everything very well. There is a Hyde No3 and No2 kevlar from 2007, and a North No1 in 3DL from 2004. The original Revolution Kevlar No2 and No4 are also very useable. For cruising there are two reefable No3’s by Hyde and Kemp, one worn, one excellent. There is an immaculate Kemp Flex cross-cut laminate reefing genoa 2009. The five assymetrics are headed by the North 6/7oz downwind 2012; otherwise the original revolution sails including heavy weather and a heavy duty fits anything form Emsworth. There are 2 spinnakers, big and small, with spinnaker pole, bought second hand. If you have lost count, that is 4 mainsails, 5 genoas, 5 jibs, 5 assymetrics and 2 spinnakers.

While she has all the racing sails, she is also equipped with a robust Kemp white cruising mainsail with 3 full reefs and a Hyde yankee No3 self reef furling jib. There is also an almost new reefing Kemp No2 genoa. All rigging is diform.
Rigging: new intermediate and caps in diform in 2016; new lowers in diform 2014 and new rod (8) forestay and refitted furler in 2014; new diform backstay 2009. Rod 10 c/w heavy duty gas Selden kicker 2008. Bowsprit and spinnaker pole. Mast last out in 2016. Running rigging all fine but unusually includes a third reef and spinnaker pole downhaul.

Broker's Comments

Present owner purchased her 2006 and set about making the yacht good for both racing and cruising, with the stipulation she should be easy to sail single handed, all electrics should be LED and she should be safe in strong winds. There is unique seat at the chart tablel and the improvised galley not often seen on a J-92 made it possible to do the Scottish Islands Peaks Race (4th overall out of 40 yachts in 2016) and the Three Peaks Yacht Race (winner in 2017) all with a crew of 5. IRC rating 0.974

Boat Trailer: there is a RM Boat Trailer available for an additional £600.00 will need to be checked for road safety.

Visiting the boat it was clearly apparent she has been extremely well cared for and any new owner will be a very lucky person! Also worth noting she is a very dry boat!
