      What are your experiences handling the J42 with a larger AS?

            Hi Conrad:

            On our J/42 Amigo VI, our largest asym is a North code 3A of 1211 sq ft.  .75 oz.
            Very easy to handle even by just the two of us.  We have used it up to 18knots true.  

            We have a slightly smaller 1.5oz asym North code 3A for heavier wind and closer reaching.

                    Or, is it the total sail area that is 1211 ft²? That is, including the main?

                    I am considering a new Asym. I would like your insight on an appropriate size for AW angles of 105 - 160 and approx. 10-18 kt AWind speed. We have an quantum V3 that is about 950 Sq ft and it seems like the boat may be able to handle a larger AS..

                    What are your experiences handling the J42 with a larger AS?

                      Sorry, I guess I'm being dense. If the ISP is 52 feet and the total area is 1211 sq ft, then the foot would have to be about 46' long.  How the heck do you sheet this thing?

                      Or, is it the total sail area that is 1211 ft²? That is, including the main?

                      Hi Conrad:

                      On our J/42 Amigo VI, our largest asym is a North code 3A of 1211 sq ft.  .75 oz.

                      Very easy to handle even by just the two of us.  We have used it up to 18knots true.  


                      We have a slightly smaller 1.5oz asym North code 3A for heavier wind and closer reaching.


                      Bernie

                      I am considering a new Asym. I would like your insight on an appropriate size for AW angles of 105 - 160 and approx. 10-18 kt AWind speed. We have an quantum V3 that is about 950 Sq ft and it seems like the boat may be able to handle a larger AS..

                      What are your experiences handling the J42 with a larger AS?

                        If you don't mind, I would be very interested in the sail dimensions.

                        At the risk of abusing the query, if you have a symmetrical spinnaker I'd also be interested in its dimensions. I'm in the process of fitting one, having always used an asym. I'm curious what other J/42 owners are using!

                        Cheers,

                          I might have my sym spinn dimensions somewhere.  I will get back to this post.

                          Those are the standard J/42 I, J, P, specs (although it's interesting that your spinnaker pole length is equal to your J dimension).

                          If you don't mind, I would be very interested in the sail dimensions.

                          At the risk of abusing the query, if you have a symmetrical spinnaker I'd also be interested in its dimensions. I'm in the process of fitting one, having always used an asym. I'm curious what other J/42 owners are using!

                          Cheers,

                          Sorry, I guess I'm being dense. If the ISP is 52 feet and the total area is 1211 sq ft, then the foot would have to be about 46' long.  How the heck do you sheet this thing?

                          Or, is it the total sail area that is 1211 ft²? That is, including the main?

                          Hi Conrad:

                          On our J/42 Amigo VI, our largest asym is a North code 3A of 1211 sq ft.  .75 oz.

                          Very easy to handle even by just the two of us.  We have used it up to 18knots true.  


                          We have a slightly smaller 1.5oz asym North code 3A for heavier wind and closer reaching.

                          I am considering a new Asym. I would like your insight on an appropriate size for AW angles of 105 - 160 and approx. 10-18 kt AWind speed. We have an quantum V3 that is about 950 Sq ft and it seems like the boat may be able to handle a larger AS..

                          What are your experiences handling the J42 with a larger AS?

                          Thanks,

                          Conrad
                          Another J

                            I am considering a new Asym. I would like your insight on an appropriate size for AW angles of 105 - 160 and approx. 10-18 kt AWind speed. We have an quantum V3 that is about 950 Sq ft and it seems like the boat may be able to handle a larger AS..

                            What are your experiences handling the J42 with a larger AS?

                            Thanks,

                            Conrad

                            I m still not getting there! :-) Converting to feet: ASL: 52.6 ft ASF: 28.2 ft ASL is the average of the luff and leach length, but assuming they are roughly

                              Converting to feet:
                              ASL: 52.6 ft
                              ASF: 28.2 ft

                              ASL is the average of the luff and leach length, but assuming they are roughly the same, then with a foot length of 28.2, the total area would be about 714 sq ft. Actual area is probably a bit more because the mid-girth width (AMG) is only slightly less than the foot length.  But, still much less than 1211 sq ft.

                              You're right about the spin pole length. I guess my situation is unusual in that I have a slightly longer-than-normal pole.

                                    The definitive answer from North:

                                    The G-AP2 is 110.78 meters squared (1,192.43 sqft), the new 3A is 102.88 meters squared (1,107.39 sqft).

                                    They are big but quite manageable.

                                    I'm still not getting there! :-)

                                    Converting to feet:
                                    ASL: 52.6 ft
                                    ASF: 28.2 ft

                                    ASL is the average of the luff and leach length, but assuming they are roughly the same, then with a foot length of 28.2, the total area would be about 714 sq ft. Actual area is probably a bit more because the mid-girth width (AMG) is only slightly less than the foot length.  But, still much less than 1211 sq ft.

                                    You're right about the spin pole length. I guess my situation is unusual in that I have a slightly longer-than-normal pole.

                                    I dug a bit deeper and here are the dimensions for my 2 asyms...a North AP2 (this is the larger cruising spinn) and my North 3A (racing/reacher).  I know these are metric but I hope they help.

                                    AMG: 8.26 m

                                      I am considering a new Asym. I would like your insight on an appropriate size for AW angles of 105 - 160 and approx. 10-18 kt AWind speed. We have an quantum V3 that is about 950 Sq ft and it seems like the boat may be able to handle a larger AS..

                                      What are your experiences handling the J42 with a larger AS?

                                        Yes, we sail out of north point marina in Zion, IL.  We race the Queens, Chicago Mack and a number of local distance races and a few double hand to Port Wash, etc.  along with our local yacht club races.

                                        I am considering a new Asym. I would like your insight on an appropriate size for AW angles of 105 - 160 and approx. 10-18 kt AWind speed. We have an quantum V3 that is about 950 Sq ft and it seems like the boat may be able to handle a larger AS..

                                        What are your experiences handling the J42 with a larger AS?

                                        Thanks,

                                        Conrad
