J/24

The J/24 class is known for its versatility, adaptability as well as its welcome embrace to sailors of all backgrounds. Quantum's experience with the class means that you're getting the best, longest lasting sails to elevate your performance. Our sails have brought some sailors to the highest professional level, and brought others bragging rights for their successes at local club races. With a full set of Quantum sails, you'll be able to point higher and go faster. Made with premium quality materials, these sails are almost bullet-proof; they'll last through those blowout regattas, as well as maintain a great shape in lighter air.

In addition to fast, premium quality, lasting sails, we've got a group of experts who are willing and able to guide you in unlocking the peak performance of your J/24. We're here with support, webinars, tuning guides and dock talks to help you get the most out of your boat. Every sailor has a different sailing style and crew weight; Quantum's tuning guide and class experts will help you find the right rig settings and sail combinations for every challenge. Working with Quantum's sailmakers, you’ll be able to achieve your optimal performance in every condition.

J/24 Mainsails

J/24 Mainsail TM-1

Durable and easy to set up, Quantum's Cross-Cut TM-1 Mainsail is up to the challenge. Unmatched on the local and world championship stages, this sail has been described as fast, controllable and powerful. Proven to out pace and out point the competition, if you are looking to elevate yourself and your crew this season, this is your sail. Constructed with the highest quality Dacron, this is the fastest, smoothest sail on the market.

INCLUDES: Inked sail numbers, draft stripes, tube bag and J/24 class royalty.

J/24 Headsails

J/24 Crosscut "Pan Am" Class Jib (100%)

The J/24 Cross-Cut PAN AM Jib was designed for the Pan American Games; this sail has stood the test of time. It is the most rugged J/24 sail on the market, built to withstand even the cruelest blow out conditions. Under pressure, it's fast and flexible, maintaining a perfect shape in the harshest of conditions. It's designed so that it can be easily changed when the Genoa is no longer necessary. Constructed with Dacron, our design provides enough power to get through the marginal patches, while simultaneously staying light and maintaining shape. It's also easily de-powered so that when conditions get rough, light crews can seamlessly stay in line with their heavy crewed competitors.

INCLUDES: draft stripes, tube bag and class royalty

J/24 Tri-Radial S.F. Class Jib (100%)

Built for the month of August in San Francisco, the J/24 Tri-Radial S.F. Jib can handle any velocity and sea state. This is our most popular heavy air jib for the J/24. Known for its controllable power and rugged durability, this is the sail of choice for the top J/24 teams. Having two world championships under its belt, there's a reason why J/24 teams choose Quantum. The S.F. Jib delivers reliable shape and an extra level of control in breezy conditions. The Tri-Radial laminated technora aramid sail minimizes drag and guarantees top notch boat speed to get through those rough waves.

INCLUDES: draft stripes, tube bag and J/24 class royalty.

J/24 Genoa TG-1

The TG-1, the perfect all around sail for any array of conditions. We've modified the TG-1 for a fuller, faster shape in light breeze, and with a few adjustments, a flatter, controllable shape in medium to heavy air sailing. Constructed with the highest quality laminated technora aramid, this sail is fast, flexible, and durable.

INCLUDES: draft stripes, sail number, tube bag and the J/24 class royalty.

J/24 Spinnakers

J/24 Full Radial Spinnaker (.75oz)

Snappy to trim, fast and well-rounded. This legendary Spinnaker is built with premium nylon for light, easy trimming while maintaining shape. Built with Superkote 75 for maximum speed and minimum weight, this is a sail built to excel in a range of conditions. Tested by world champions, this sail will have you at the next mark in record time. This spinnaker is well balanced, easy to trim and easy to drive behind. Not to mention, it comes in a variety of colors to add another level of cohesion and allure to your boat.

INCLUDES: class royalty.

Travis Odenbach

Travis Odenbach rose to the top of the One Design circuit in multiple classes in a short amount of time. A native of Rochester who grew up sailing in the Rochester Yacht Club, his first race experience as a boy was on a Laser. As a member of a sail racing family, he crewed with his parents on their family C&C 37 R and later their Concordia 47.

At age 20 he bought himself a J22 and worked hard to have success on the race course. This led to his first job in the sailing industry with Waterline Systems. As a young sailor, he worked with experts from sail companies who helped him learn the business and fine tune his racing skills. It's this experience that drives Travis to do the work he does today. He now consults other sailors to help them have the best possible experience on the water and he loves being able to give back to the sport in this way.

His career has taken him from North Sails to Haarstick Sailmakers and now to Quantum Sails Rochester. During this time he has polished his skills as a one-on-one sales consultant who specializes in One Design sails and works with sailors all over the world. He is an accomplished member of Quantum's team of J/22, J/24, and J/70 class experts.

In the J/24 class, Travis has won the North Americans and finished in the top three multiple times at Nationals, North Americans, and Worlds. In the Beneteau First 36.7 class he's helped win three North American championships, and in the J/22 class he has multiple top-five finishes at the world and North American championships. Around the country you can find Travis winning many regional events driving his own J/24 or helping customers on J/70s, J/24s, J/22s, Ideal 18s, and other larger boats. Some of his career highlights included a division win on a Carkeek HPR 40 in the 2016 Annapolis-to-Newport regatta, second place at the 2017 J/22 North Americans, and third at the J/24 Worlds. Travis also enjoys Moth sailing.

Carter White

Carter White began sailing before he could walk, first on the family's Lightning and later on their J/24. He has experienced the beauty of the Gulf of Maine while cruising and racing its coast of Maine. And though Carter has sailed and raced on multiple continents and in hundreds of locations, he considers the Maine coast of one the best places in the world to sail.
 
An accomplished junior sailor, Carter competed in multiple National Championships, including the U.S. Sailing Bemis and Sears competitions. He then took a chance on an upstart college program at Hobart and William Smith Colleges where he majored in economics and joined an aggressive, young, and new sailing team. Carter helped build the program into a national contender almost immediately; by his senior year, the program was ranked number one in the country. Carter was named All American for outstanding performance in intercollegiate sailing competition. 
 
Following graduation, Carter worked for a local sailmaker in Maine. There he learned sail design, built and repaired sails, installed marine rigging, managed the small business, and helped it grow into the leading local source for sails, canvas, and rigging. Carter also sailed with many of his customers, helping them win major championships such as the PHRF New England Championships and Key West Race Week.
 
Carter took this broad experience and started a business running sailing regattas and providing custom apparel and marketing products to marine businesses and events. The company is still going strong today. He is excited to move to the next challenge with Quantum Sails and focus on his true passion of helping sailors get more out of their boats, whether on the race course, gunkholing down the coast, or making a long ocean passage.
