The International J/80 is a fixed keel, One-Design sports boat certified for offshore sailing, normally crewed by 3 to 5 people. As well as its mainsail & headsail, the J/80 has a 700 square foot gennaker for downwind sailing, which when the wind rises over 15 knots gets the boat on the plane downwind.
According to Sailing World Magazine, “The J/80 is easier to handle, less intimidating, safer and better suited for sailing offshore than other modern sport boats tested.” In 2007, two swedish guys (Andreas Granberg and Jens Utbult) crossed the Atlantic ocean in a J80.
