J/105 for sale

2003 Miles River Race Back



Memories of Team Chantecler and other sailing adventures

A big Larry smile

I have initially set up this web site to sell Jay Boat. Jay Boat was my first J/Boats J/105, a 1998 shoal draft 35 footer with wheel steering. There was nothing wrong with Jay Boat, but when I bought a 50% co-ownership share in the boat in January 1999, I did not expect that I would soon want more racing time. So, in November 2000 my boat partner and I decided to terminate the partnership and I sold my share to a new partner.

My next boat was J/105 for sale. Chantecler is also a J/105 but with two big differences with Jay Boat: first, Chantecler, hull #536 June 2001, is a J/Boats (J-Europe-built) J-105 (JBoats boats are build by licensed manufacturers: Pearson Composites, LLC in the US and JEurope in France); and second, Chantecler is a Deep Draft boat for better blue water racing.

Ce toit tranquille is my homepage.

How not to surf breaking waves

What was this guy thinking?

Spectacular slide show of a Santana 22 capsizing underneath the Golden Gate Bridge

There are 113 high resolution slides. The photographer (Wayne Lambright from sfSurvey.com 4/2/2005 2:59PM) comments:

"Sailboat Capsizes under Golden Gate Bridge, Surfers come to the Rescue, I was at Fort Point today, finishing up an eleven part photo essay on the surfers of San Francisco, and then I saw this sailboat, I said to the crowd, "LOOK, this sailboat is going to surf the waves!" Then it capsized, the surfers came to the rescue, and saved the two sailors."
