J/22 CLASS INFO

Quantum has been involved with the J/22 class since day one. We have put in endless hours of testing and refining our sails and rig tune to help you get the most out of your J/22. Today, our J/Boat division of designers and sailors works on all aspects of our program, continually injecting new ideas and thinking, so every day, we are moving forward. Quantum’s top J/22 race results include multiple world, North American, European and Midwinter championships.

J/22 Mainsails

J/22 Class Mainsail

Quantum's mainsails have evolved over the years to be the most user-friendly mainsails in the class. The use of durable, yarn-tempered Dacron® makes it easier to adjust sail shape with backstayand sheet tension. The mainsail comes complete with a shelf foot, tapered fiberglass battens, draft stripes, sail numbers, visibility and spreader windows, insignia, class royalty and roll bag.

J/22 Headsails

J/22 Class Jib

Quantum's jibs have evolved to become more user-friendly. With a deeper foot and a rounder entry, our jib has a wide groove and great acceleration out of tacks and off the starting line. We have found this sail to be a great performer in both flat and lumpy water. Jibs come complete with telltales, bronze jib hanks, visibility window, draft stripes, class royalty and roll bag.

J/22 Spinnakers

J/22 AIRX 650 Spinnaker

Quantum has long been the leader in spinnaker design technology. This is quite apparent in our J/22 spinnakers. We updated our horizontal profile to a more elliptical shape that gives the 
spinnaker maximum projected area while still being easy to fly. The strength of our tri-radial panels locks in the shape so your sail will stay fast longer. Airx 650 is the lightest cloth available that meets the class rules, and is now available colors shown. Spinnakers come complete with sail numbers and a fold bag. Price also includes class royalty.

Terry Flynn, a third generation sailmaker, started out in Annapolis, Maryland, where he developed a great foundation for both cruising and racing. He grew up on the family sailboat, cruising all over the Chesapeake Bay. Before he was 15 years old, he made 10 offshore deliveries from New York to Florida.

As a racer, Terry has competed in the Newport-Bermuda, the old SORC, Annapolis-Newport, and Trans-Superior races. His One Design credits include four J/22 North Americans and a World Championship. He’s also won North Americans, Nationals, and Midwinter races on 420s, Lightnings, J/24s, J/80s, J/30s, and Cadets, as well as winning One Ton, ¾ Ton, and ½ Ton Championships.

Growing up around sailors, Terry naturally fell into sailmaking and has never looked back. He’s worked his way up through the ranks, doing everything from bench work to design during his 37 year career. Terry has been with Quantum since the beginning, using his experiences to make sails that help customers improve their racing result or simply get more enjoyment out of their boats.
