The J/105 - Weekend Cruising on the Chesapeake

The J/105

Want to get away for a fun-filled weekend cruising on the Chesapeake Bay?  The Club's fleet of J/105 sailboats are ready and waiting for you.

A fun and forgiving performance boat that is easy to sail, J/105 offers low maintenance with a simple layout, has great performance, a large cockpit, predictable handling characteristics and makes no pretences of being a distance cruiser. The Club takes care of all the maitenance, so instead of varnishing toe-rails and troubleshooting systems you'll be enjoying a sail with friends.  

The J/32 - The Ideal Cruising Boat for the Chesapeake

Better than a Charter on the Chesapeake - The J/32 from the Club

When you're ready to go cruise one of the world's top sailing grounds - the Club makes it easy and economical with our fleet of J/32 sailboats - ready and waiting for you.  Pick your destination here on the Chesapeake, reserve your J/32 on the Club's web site, pack the cooler and head on down to the club to step aboard your J/32 and go cruising!  Being a member of the Club provides all the benefits of cruising the bay with none of the hassles and costs of owning, chartering or renting.  

The ideal cruising boat for many years has been the classic 40 foot sloop. For the first time, thanks to new building technology and design, the comfort and performance benefits of that cruising ideal are now available in 32 feet.   Apart from being more affordable to own and operate, there's an added dimension of comfort in a smaller boat: Maneuverability - landing at a dock or threading through crowded harbors. Furthermore, the J/32 is designed to sail well under mainsail alone and cruise with a small jib rather than genoa. There are no big sails to winch and wrestle and the constant sail changing of heavy displacement cruisers is avoided.
