On this page you will find the specifications for North’s standard Class racing sails for the J/109. Because of the unique racer/cruiser qualities of the J/109, each individual owner will use their boat in a different way. Some owners will only race their J/109, while others will mix weeknight racing with weekend cruising. Still others have bought the J/109 simply to have a high performance cruising boat. To attempt to define one inventory for the boat would simply be a disservice to all of the owners. For more information regarding the full range of North products including Dacron and 3DL™ 860 carbon fiber, please contact North Sails' J/109 Class Sail Development Leader, Jack Orr (jacko@sales.northsails.com).

The MN-4 is the first major upgrade since 2005. The new model includes all black yarns, longer lasting Performance Films, and an updated designed shape. Since you only get to use one mainsail it has to be versatile enough to cover the full wind range. Our standard class sail is easy to trim and will hold its fast shape even when the wind increases. The sail is designed to use the full range of the backstay adjustment.

J/109 CLASS HEADSAIL

AP-5 105% Class Headsail $4,860
3DL Aramid/Carbon 14700 DPI

I = 14.17
J = 4.05

For 2013 we have added some new features to make the Jibs easier to handle and last longer, including Horizontal Roller battens and durable Performance Films. The AP-4 is optimized for 0-15 knots TWS. It has plenty of power in light air and the shape can be easily adjusted by changing the halyard and backstay tension as the wind increases. This sail features a tighter Aramid scrim to strengthen the leech and an increased leech length and foot to get the sail closer to the deck.

FEATURES:

» Class Royalty Sticker
» Horizontal Roller Battens
» High Modulus Leech Line

J/109 HEAVY HEADSAIL

HA-4 105% Heavy Headsail $5,062
3DL Aramid/Carbon 16800 DPI

For 2013 we have added some new features to make the Jibs easier to handle and last longer, including Horizontal Roller battens and durable Performance Films. The HA-3 is flatter in shape than the AP jib, but not as flat or smaller like a blade jib, so the boat will stay on its feet in heavier breeze and accelerate instead of heeling and sliding sideways. We kept the sail full size so that the sail will still have some power in windy, but lumpy conditions. This year we are offering lightweight Taffeta on one side as an extra option for durability.

J/109 CLASS ASYMMETRICS

NEW! A1.5-2 Class Spinnaker 108m2 - Asymmetric $4,894

SPL = 5.72
ISP = 14.84

Sailing the J/109 in 8-10 TWS can be tough downwind. It’s not really windy enough to sail the really deep angles the boat likes and if it’s lumpy, it gets harder. This sail was developed from designs used on bigger Grand Prix boats such as the TP52s. The concept was to build a sail that would be fast sailing the best angles in light air, but still rotate and fly well at deeper angles when needed to hold position. That concept works really well on the latest generation of J-class sprit boats, like the J/109 and J/122. If you live in a light air area or you get lumpy conditions at 12 TWS. This sail will make the difference.

NEW! A2-2 Class Spinnaker 108m2 - Asymmetric $4,862

SPL = 5.72
ISP = 14.84

This sail loves to sail deep angles and rotate to weather downwind. It has a bigger more powerful head section and more elliptical shaping on the edges. So it will be more stable than the previous design with the tack raised and the sheet eased. But it still works well at tighter angles if it gets lighter. We really like this design and it has proven versatile and fast, in all conditions.

NEW! A4-1 Class Spinnaker 108m2 - Heavy Asymmetric $4,886

SPL = 13.33
ISP = 49.00

This sail isn't just a heavier version of the 2A, it's shape and geometry are optimized for sailing in breeze over 18 knots TWS. The 4A spinnaker is more stable and easier to trim and gybe in heavier breeze. This sail is designed to keep the tack down, but still project out to windward, which makes it easier to keep the sail under the chute and more stable in lumpy conditions. This will be a great addition to any J/109 inventory.
