Offshore Racing Events
J/World Performance Sailing has been coaching racers of all levels for over 40 years. After making thousands of buoy races faster and smarter around the course, we expanded in to the growing world of distance and offshore racing. Since that time, we have run coached programs in numerous iterations of such prestigious events as the Transpac, the Pacific Cup, Newport to Bermuda, Newport to Cabo, San Diego to Puerto Vallarta Race, and many more.
J/World proudly offers the ultimate in offshore racing programs. We realize that is it difficult to gain good experience in offshore racing, and so we have constructed programs to help individuals advance their game to the level where they are comfortable offshore, can contribute positively to racing teams, and/or mount an offshore campaign of their own. We conduct big-boat training aboard our grand-prix level boats in an active and highly instructional environment. Most programs have 2:1 student to instructor ratios, insuring that everyone gets a tremendous amount of personal attention.
There are no other programs like ours anywhere in the world!
Our offshore programs, put together and managed by J/World, are absolutely unique in the world of yachting. You are a truly active and integral member of the team. We don’t load the boat with clients to the point where no one gets to do anything. We won’t just park you over a grinding pedestal We aren’t just taking you for a ride like so many big boat programs. You are sailing the boat. You get to drive, trim, navigate… whatever your interests are, we’ll be sure that you get to exercise that muscle.
For most events, we limit enrollment to six clients. With three coaches aboard, that’s a 2:1 ratio that means everyone aboard gets a ton of personal attention from our extremely experienced staff.
These programs are fully turn-key, and managed by a team of sailors who are hand selected for both their extensive sailing background, and their ability to coach well and share their knowledge, expertise, and enthusiasm with others. The afloat staff is supported by our expert shore team, insuring that you have the time of your life.
The boat is either owned or sourced by J/World. This is crucial… it is not some random vessel with an unknown equipment list. To you, this means that the equipment is on absolutely top condition, the boat is maintained to the highest competitive standards, and the safety equipment onboard is second to none.
The J/World Offshore Programs are singular in the world of yachting. If you have heard of other pay-to-play programs or you have joined the ‘cattle boat’ programs that dominate the market, it’s time to rethink your experience. There is no other program in the world like J/World Offshore.
