J80 class website

The J80 is an 8.50 m keel boat, a one-design boat designed for a level playing field on the race course and keeping costs down.

The J80 class: the largest class of cabin monohull in France

Every J80 wishing to race in an official event of the J80 calendar must be measured (hull and sails) by an official class measurer.

The class rules permit just one set of sails per boat per year. 
A set of sails includes a 14 m2 jib, a 20.50 m2 mainsail and a 65 m2 spinnaker. 


Les Championnats du monde et d'Europe sont organisés par la Classe chaque année dans un pays différent.

World and European Championships are organised by the class in a different country each year.
In France, the National Championship consists of 8 events including Spi Ouest France.  In 2011, no less than 105 J80s competed at this event, making it the outright record for a one-design fleet at Spi Ouest France.

All Purpose’s involvement in the J80 fleet

Sylvain Pellissier of All Purpose Le Crouesty is constantly out on the water in the hunt for podium results. He won the J80 National Championship in 2013.

 "It is crucial that we ourselves race in these classes to evaluate and validate our choices in real-life conditions. Our changes are “slow” but apparently interesting. I say “slow” because we are only allowed one set of sails per year (jib, mainsail and spinnaker). More generally, the extra speed that we are finding for the J24, J80 and Open classes, can be transferred from one class to another. It is important to have sailors in every class who will benefit from these developments."
