| Jay Lutz grew up sailing on the NJ shore, in Barnegate Bay, with his father and two brothers. He began racing at the age of six.
Jay began his sailmaking career in 1983 by opening his own sail loft, which he sold to North in 2001. He focuses much of his energy on PHRF and IRC classes, often sailing with clients. In the One-Design region, Jay specializes in the J80 Class. He has been fortunate enough to win four world championship sailing titles (J80, Lightning), and a Silver medal in the 2011 Pan-Am games (Lightning). On the inshore racing circuit, Jay claimed 1st place in fleet in the Chicago Mac race in (2000), 1st in class at Key West Race Week 7 times in One-Design, PHRF and IRC , and a handful of wins at Block Island Race Week.
Its fair to say that Jay's element is within Inshore Racing. As for when he's not sailing, "I'm with my family, doing whatever we feel like doing!"
