The Canterbury J Class

Sticky Topic   Canterbury J - General

April 20, 2008

HOWEVER......... There is a little class .... smaller that the existing 12 metre classes that do have a boat that they do want to make and sell called a CANTERBURY J. J's are the class of yachts that battled for the America's Cup before the 12s got involved. So one could say this class is a kindred class to 12s. Only someone perdantic would discriminate here. Be that as it may , these boats are made in New Zealand and the people involved are keen to produce!

These CJ's as I call them are shorter, 48" long and are only 6 to 7 kgs in weight  and I think this CJ would make an IDEAL yacht to replace the yacht we just can't get.

Each hull, the 'Canterbury J', and the 'Aussie J',  has its pros and cons during the building stage, and I will attempt to describe why I have taken the steps I have, to build both boats... And to describe general observations, and thoughts, regarding the building of both boats.

September 29, 2014

Here, I will post notes and images related to the building of my own Aussie J...

It is not a 'Canterbury J' but it is a very very close relative. Similar to the British 'Nottingham J' built by Alan Horne. I have decided to include it under the umbrella of the Canterbury J, as the boats are very similar, but one, is arguably, easier to build that the other. Although there are pros and cons of each boat related to the other...
