Happy Holidays and Thank You from J/World!

Wow, what a year it was!  Thanks so much to all our supporters for a fantastic 2018.  We raced to Puerto Vallarta, Bermuda, Hawaii, and along the California Coast.  We cruised to Baja, Cabo, Hawaii, the Channel Islands, and Newport RI.  We rounded innumerable buoys, dropped thousands of feet of anchor rode (and had to pull it all back up!), all while introducing hundreds of sailors to the sport we love! Thank you all, and we hope to see...

2018 Newport to Bermuda Race Report

Well the 2018 Newport to Bermuda Race is all wrapped up!  It was a challenging year, with a lot of light breeze and some periods of slow going, but we had an excellent time.  Team J/World boasted a full team of our alumni from other offshore events and was backed up by coaches Paul, Patrick, and Wayne. The mighty Westerly, a sweet Santa Cruz 52, provided a comfortable and fast platform.  While we were one of the leading pack into Bermuda...

Palm trees, flip-flop, whales and sea-turtles: Winter Sailing!

So this is winter down at our Puerto Vallarta J/World facility.  Our fleet is all dialed in, and  we have a whole range of courses and activities on tap. Not sure what the weather is like in your neck of the woods, but it really doesn’t get any better than this. Palm trees, flip-flop, whales and sea-turtles. We love winter.  And we aren’t bragging.  We are inviting.  Come join us for a sail!

2017 Baja Ha Ha – that’s all, folks!

So we got this report from Paul yesterday, filed from the finish of the cruiser’s rally from San Diego to Cabo San Lucas that marks the start of the southern cruising season. And he sent a bunch of photos with the direction to post what we wanted. I have to say we dug them all, so they are ALL published.  When it’s this cool, who can pick and choose? Our season starts NOW in beautiful Puerto Vallarta, with sailing,...

To Be, or N2B… Newport to Bermuda, of course!!

Ok, we are excited to be announcing that J/World will be entering the 2018 Newport to Bermuda Race. The Newport to Bermuda Race is one of the world’s most renown offshore events, and as such draws premier boats and sailors from every corner of the globe. As if just racing in the N2B wasn’t exciting enough, how about this: we’ll be doing it on a super sweet Santa Cruz 52, Westerly.  Yeah, I thought that might get your attention.  So...

2017 Transpac Wrap Up – Congrats Team Hula Girl!

Ok, the spray  has settled after the 2017 Transpac and wow, what an absolute blast!  I have to say that our fleet comprised of 10 Santa Cruz 50s and 52s was probably one of the most competitive fleets I have race in an offshore event….  ever!  The boats were all highly competitive and stacked with top tier sailors.  So it makes me especially proud that our mixed team of clients and coaches was able to sail into third place!...

TRANSPAC 2017 Finish Line Report

Hello to our Friends and Families! Ok, we are on the home-stretch of the 2017 Transpac.  We are aiming straight at Molokai about 10 miles out, with Oahu just in sight.  It feels good.  And boy it’s been a tough couple days.  Really shifty out here, with light breezes that require a lot of concentration to keep the boat moving…  and moving in the right direction.  We knew this was a fierce fleet from the outset. And it is...
