Welcome to the home page for J/22 Fleet 60. We are a part of the Catawba Yacht Club here on Lake Wylie, about 10 miles southeast of Charlotte. We currently have six boats in our fleet and are growing fast. Come on out and give us a run for the trophies.
People say the J/22 is the best sailing boat they've ever been on. It's responsive, stable, safe, and as much fun to singlehand as it is to plane under spinnaker in 18 knots of wind. A J/22 at 1850 lbs can be towed behind an SUV and be launched with the local yacht club hoist. With its easy-to-rig, deck-stepped mast, you can be from trailer to sailing in 30 minutes.
One of the keys to the J/22's success is its durability. Hulls and decks are built with Baltek cored laminates to withstand years of hard use. Many 12-15 year old boats with hull numbers below 500 routinely win major J/22 championships.
The boat that appeals to all ages and skill levels is now generating more interest than ever before. With new boats under construction and available in Rhode Island, you can have world-class speed right out of the box.
Try it. You'll like it.
