Jack Mithun from Santa Barbara, CA sent us this sweet note about his J/100 experiences:
“I have crewed here in Santa Barbara a few times, but now I'm mostly active with my J/100 EGRET on San Francisco Bay. The boat is easy to handle single-handed and does well (with reefed sails) on the windy Bay. The boat has sailed the waters of the Bay for over 10 years and seems to be right at home there.
The J/100 was advertised as a day-sailor, and it does that job perfectly! The cockpit is large enough to have several guests on board. It's always fun for out-of-towners to go for a ride on the famous and beautiful Bay. It's always fun to take EGRET for a turn on the water. I keep her in the Sausalito Yacht Harbor and commute there by ferry from San Francisco. That is always a pleasure ride in itself.”
