INTERNATIONAL J/111 CLASS RULES Version 2012 - 02 Effective Date: 1 April 20122 J/111 Class Rules

INTRODUCTION

Prior to the Class being formed with suitable By-Laws in place and with at least 50

active owners, J Boats Inc. (J/111 copyright and trademark holder) shall take the

position of the Class Association and the Executive Committee. Please contact

info@jboats.com with any inquiries.

This introduction only provides an informal background and the International J/111 Class

Rules proper begin on the next page.

The J/111 Class has been created as a strict one-design Class where the true test when

racing is between crews and not boats and equipment. The fundamental objective of these

class rules is to ensure that this concept is maintained.

J/111 hulls, hull appendages and rigs shall be manufacturer controlled and shall only be

produced by a manufacturer licensed by J Boats, Inc.. Equipment is built in accordance with

the J/111 Building Specification and Configuration Manual. These parts having left the

manufacturer may only be altered to the extent permitted in Section C of the class rules.

J/111 sails are measurement controlled to control all the primary dimensions but may be

made by any manufacturer. In order to confirm compliance with the class rules sails are

required to be certified by an official measurer or by a manufacturer licensed under the

ISAF In House Certification. These parts may only be altered to the extent permitted in

Section C of the class rules after certification control has been performed.

Rules regulating the use of equipment during a race are contained in Section C of these class

rules, in ERS Part I and in the Racing Rules of Sailing.

THESE RULES ARE CLOSED CLASS RULES WHERE IF IT DOES NOT
