So we got this report from Paul yesterday, filed from the finish of the cruiser’s rally from San Diego to Cabo San Lucas that marks the start of the southern cruising season. And he sent a bunch of photos with the direction to post what we wanted. I have to say we dug them all, […]

Ok, we are excited to be announcing that J/World will be entering the 2018 Newport to Bermuda Race. The Newport to Bermuda Race is one of the world’s most renown offshore events, and as such draws premier boats and sailors from every corner of the globe. As if just racing in the N2B wasn’t exciting […]
Ok, the spray has settled after the 2017 Transpac and wow, what an absolute blast! I have to say that our fleet comprised of 10 Santa Cruz 50s and 52s was probably one of the most competitive fleets I have race in an offshore event…. ever! The boats were all highly competitive and stacked with top […]
Hello to our Friends and Families! Ok, we are on the home-stretch of the 2017 Transpac. We are aiming straight at Molokai about 10 miles out, with Oahu just in sight. It feels good.

After much preparation and anticipation, the J/World Hula Girl team is underway and racing. Watch this space for updates and reports along the way. It’s ON!
Ok, the spray has settled from the 2017 California Offshore Race Week, and we are here with a report of the fun! The first leg was the Spinnaker Cup, from SF to Monterrey. We had a solid showing aboard our new boat, Cazan, with a third in class. Nice job, team! We had a well […]
The name Merlin is iconic in the world of racing sailboats. When Bill Lee designed and built her just outside Santa Cruz, then went on to crush the competition racing to Hawaii and setting a record that would stand for 20 years, the understanding of what defined a fast sailing yacht was completely upended. I’ll […]
