The J/22 is a fast and modern keelboat, combining the feel and exhilaration of a dinghy with the upright stability of a high-performance keelboat. Chosen for its responsiveness and safety, this ‘sailing sports car’ delivers immediate feedback to subtle changes in sail trim and steering. It is no wonder the J/22 remains the nation’s perennial favorite when it comes to fun sailing and adult training.
Chicago Sailing’s J/22s are specifically outfitted to make your time on the water easy, safe, and comfortable. The 7-foot cockpit will accommodate up to 5 adults comfortably, with a cuddy cabin for refuge from the weather. Our exclusive jib furling and self-packing mainsail system makes sail handling fast and easy. Of course, all of our J22s come complete with USCG safety equipment, including life jackets, first aid kit, fire extinguisher and signaling devices, as well as a 3.5hp outboard motor
