    Rigging Guide or How-to?

    Hello Scott - Tuning depends on the brand of sails you've got. Most of the sail makers have J/22 tuning guides designed specifically for their sails. Also, North U used to have a CD/DVD on the J/22, but I haven't seen it recently. You might try E-Bay or Amazon. Welcome to the group! KT

    Hull number

    From the J/22 Class Association Constitution: 4.2 – The Hull Numbers shall mean the Builder’s Code letters, the Hull Number allocated by J-Boats, Inc., on a consecutive basis world wide, and the Date of Molding onto the transom. Example: TSP20949C989 Tillotson Pearson J/22 949 September 1989 So I would bet that the boat in question is hull #4 built in January 1983. KT

    Buzzards bay regatta

    Hello Will - I have it from a reliable source that if we can come up with 10 J/22s, you will get a start at BBR. However, in the past they haven't been able to get 10 boats for the event. Just a note guys. KT

    iPhone app for boat speed?

    I have MotionX GPS app for the iPhone, it can be set to show knots, or mph and nautical or statute miles. There are also a couple of tracking apps that will take the GPS data from the iPhone and plot your course and speed on a map. Again, not class legal for racing but interesting to play with. KT

    Polar diagram

    You can order Polars for most boats from US SAILING, but they're not cheap ($275/$325) http://store.ussailing.org/viewItem.asp?It...esc=Performance Package&VendorDesc=&Search=N://http://store.ussailing.org/viewItem...c=&Search=N KT
