The galley is small but efficient.

The Sweets have reworked the backstay so that the lines run through the
fairleads along the lower edge of the
coaming from the stern to eliminate
any tripping hazards. Not only is she
now free from any stray control lines
behind the wheel but also any stray
elbows from the crew.
The jib can be cross-sheeted so that
either crew or helm are able to adjust
from the windward side. I was easily
able to hand-pull the non-overlapping
jib with only a slight adjustment with
the winch handle for a final tune. There
are two primaries next to the helm position and two coach top winches for halyards. Unlike traditional jib cars, the jib
is sheeted with a floating eye-ring on a
longitudinal track so that it may be
positioned fore and after and pinned
into place. With the sheet running

The salon is comfy and inviting.

through the floating eye, the effect of a
barber hauler can be attained for further twist in light winds, choppy seas or
sailing just off the wind. The boat comes
standard with a hanked-on jib configuration, however, the Sweets elected to
install a furling system which certainly
made it a snap to furl the jib at the end
of our sail. The main is attached with
cars, using a stopper at the bottom, then
hoisted without the hassle of feeding in
the slides. The theory behind the custom AG designed alloy-extrusion mast is
that it allows the owner to use a mainsail
with the slides or bolt rope without any
adaption required.
All halyards, main sail controls, and
furling line come back to the cockpit,
including the boomvang. In a blow,
having the boomvang in an easy place
to ease makes it even more important

for the shorthanded crew. All are easy
to adjust without having a gorilla as
your cockpit crew.
Although we didn't put up the 100
m2 - A2 spinnaker, I was able to view
the boat going through its paces happily
sailing around other boats adrift in a 23 knot breeze the day before, and making it appear to the race committee that
there was enough wind to sail for all
boats! The new fixed carbon fibre
bowsprit is rigged with double tack fittings for both the spinnaker and Code
0. With the tack line for the Code 0 at
the bow on a jammer, it is easily lowered and furled by only one person on
the foredeck. The molded toerails are a
great safety feature for anyone on the
foredeck. The other tack line is led to
the cockpit and used for the spinnaker.
The new fixed bowsprit has enough
length to use both an asymmetric and
symmetrical spinnaker and not carry a
penalty rating.
Keeping in line with the J/Boats
minimalistic approach to salon décor
below deck, the J/99 is no exception.
Everything is simple, sparse and basic -
no frills, but also less to take care of. A
couple of unique features are that there
are twin quarter berths of good size, not
just for your kids. The forward-facing
navigation table, on the starboard side
