J Boats now makes it possible to sail fast with only a friend or two to lend a hand as crew. After all, isn’t this how we enjoy our sailing most of the time? It is not often that we have a full crew aboard to hold the boat down or hoist the chute. Being aware of the realities of how we sail, the measure of a good sailboat should be how well it sails upwind and downwind with only 2-3 people aboard. The goal is VMG, Velocity-Made-Good, straight into the wind or away from the wind, considering both speed and sailing angle. Many of the modern integrated instrumentation systems can display this data, or you can use a set way-point to windward on a GPS to come up with the number. Good short-handed VMGs are when a ”50-something” husband & wife jibe a J/105 (34.5 ft.) with asymmetrical through Woods Hole against the current, while others motor. Or, if you can beat upwind in steep waves doing 6.8 knots with a VMG of 5 knots in 18 knots of wind! J Boats offers sailboats from 26 to 53 feet.
