2019 Transpac Opportunity!
We have just had a couple of cancellations in the 2019 Transpac aboard our J/World boats.  All three of our entries have been sold out for well over a year, so this is a rare opportunity to join the 50th running of this iconic race.  Our teams a re comprised of six sailors each supported by three coaches per boat.  Everyone is a fully engaged, active member of the team.  Every one of our boats is a blast to sail:  DK46, turboed Santa Cruz 50, and a Santa Cruz 52.  J/World has run programs in the past twelve races from CA to HI and has a proven record, including podium finishes in more than half of the events... see the full post

J/105 Racing Week!
Ok, here we go again.  Last week it was cruising in Mexico.  This week, we are posting another photo-essay on ‘what it’s like’ with J/World on a racing clinic we did in San Diego last week.  Sail trim, spinnakers, strategy, tactics, rules…  what didn’t we cover?  We had a fantastic time on the water and would like to thank all the attendees for making it a a truly wonderful week!... see the full post

Cruising Mexico – A Photo Report
Ok, this falls into our “What it’s like…” series of posts where we try to share the experience of a sailing adventure through photos and text.  This entry in the series is going to be short on text, because, well, the photos that Paul filed from the cruising course last week pretty much say it all.  This 5 day Liveaboatd Cruising Course happened at our Puerto Vallarta location aboard our Lagoon 42 Catamaran.   Two more... see the full post

Happy Holidays and Thank You from J/World!
Wow, what a year it was!  Thanks so much to all our supporters for a fantastic 2018.  We raced to Puerto Vallarta, Bermuda, Hawaii, and along the California Coast.  We cruised to Baja, Cabo, Hawaii, the Channel Islands, and Newport RI.  We rounded innumerable buoys, dropped thousands of feet of anchor rode (and had to pull it all back up!), all while introducing hundreds of sailors to the sport we love!

Thank you all, and we hope to see you again (or for the first time) in 2019!

Sydney to Hobart: 2 Days Out
It’s Christmas eve here in Australia and Santa’s Silver Sleigh, the mighty Prospector, is ready to go. We have had three good days of practice and now are enjoying a little holiday time with our families. Matt Baldwin is working his usual magic in the kitchen and the facilities at the Balmain Rowing Club, which is serving as our private dining club, have been terrific.The start will be an epic spectacle. The Great Race is a big deal in Australia. We will be on the northern start line with all of the glamour boats, a fleet of 14 that include five 100 footers, eight 60-70 footers and one 50 footer. The coast will be... see the full post

Sydney to Hobart
December 26, 2018 brings the next chapter in Prospector adventures when the silver canoe crosses the start for the Sydney to Hobart race.  Australia’s Great Race is 628NM long down the southeastern coast of New South Wales, across the Bass Straight and ultimately up the Derwent River to the finish at Constitution Dock in Hobart.  The race renowned for challenging, changeable conditions across a tough patch of water.  It can be either a downwind or an upwind race, though typically it is downwind with a shift to upwind as the fleet crosses the Bass Strait and approaches Tasmania.  To cap it off, the... see the full post
