This J/125 is incredible! Warrior has just undergone extensive upgrades and improvements for offshore racing in preparation the 2010 Cabo race... and won first place overall in all ratings! The owner has spared nothing to make this the best J/125 better than new in all aspects: strength, finish with a fast underbody! All work was professionally done or supervised by Carbon Race Products, Steve Dodd in Southern California. This incredibly meticulous owner gave Steve the order to make this the best prepared and flawless J/125 regardless of what it took. The list of optimizations is long and spared no details. "Warrior" has had a complete overhaul from top of the mast to the bottom of the keel. Take a look at the "upgrades & additions" under full specs and you will get an idea of the amount of time, efforts and dedication and care this boat has received from a crew of professionals bent on making it “perfect”. The 41 foot J/125 is as close to high performance big-boat sailing one can find in a boat that’s manageable (yes, even with spinnaker) by two or three people. J/125 is like a street-legal Indy 500 car that’s easier to drive than the family sedan. Joy in ownership (and investment) is a function of time spent sailing. Time sailing depends on how easy it is to be off “on the spur of the moment” inspired by a beautiful day without having to organize 8-10 crew.

J/125 is like a street-legal Indy 500 car that’s easier to drive than the family sedan. Joy in ownership (and investment) is a function of time spent sailing. Time sailing depends on how easy it is to be off “on the spur of the moment” inspired by a beautiful day without having to organize 8-10 crew.
Easy to Go Sailing - How easy? Throw off the cover and hoist the mainsail on slides from the cockpit using a 2:1 halyard purchase. Cast off and sail faster under mainsail alone than most boats under full canvas. Unroll the jib and fly upwind. Ready to really take off? Pull out the retractable carbon bowsprit. Hoist the spinnaker in its sock. Then from the cockpit, slide the sock up the sail to deploy the spinnaker. Trim the sheet. Hold on to your hats! To jibe, cast off one sheet and pull in the other. No need for anyone on the foredeck. To douse the spinnaker, cast off the sheet and pull the sock down over the sail from the cockpit. Stow when ready. Can you imagine the surprise of other sailors as you fly by them in 15 knots of breeze doing 10-12 knots?
Getting the Gun - One of the thrills J/125 owners experience frequently is being first-to-finish and getting the gun. The local crowd ashore assumes, as in other types of races, being first across the line determines the winner. J/125 upwind target speed is 7.8 - 8.0 knots. 10+ knots downwind is a daily occurrence. In fact we know of no other boat of its type and length that’s faster. Finding crew for weeknight and Saturday races is hardly a problem when you’re first to the party.
Stability & Seaworthiness The sense of solidity and power when sailing the J/125 is explained by J/125’s extraordinary stability index of 143 degrees with a stability curve ratio of positive to negative areas of 12.5:1. This greater stability is combined with a balanced hull-form with proper amounts of reserve buoyancy forward, capable of safer & controllable higher-speed planing offshore in large waves and providing a wider steering groove upwind for sustained peak performance by average helmspersons. No IMS rule-inspired hull form can match the high 4.72 length to beam ratio of this sea-kindly yacht nor the reserve buoyancy designed into her bow sections. High length to beam ratio insures straight tracking in rough seas and light steering loads. Sailboats with fine bows and full midship sections are more difficult to balance and more likely to spin out of control in big waves.
