Shore Goes Way Back with J Boats

Bill Shore had early involvement with many of the J boat development designs, but few more so than the J 24. Bill's sails may have won more world championships in the J 24 class than any other sail maker. This boat and it's successful sail inventory was designed to compete in both one-design and MORC racing.

Bill introduced many innovations to J 24 sails. We were the first to design the triradial Mylar genoa, the wide girth spinnakers and the triradial Dacron jib. These triradial sails evolved into our enormously popular offshore Spider sail designs which rely on radial panel layouts. We were the first sailmaker to assist our customers to maximize their performance with an extensive J 24 tuning guide.
