More J/36 JAZZ Cruising Stories!

J/36 sailing off Plymouth, England (Plymouth, England)- The J/36 JAZZ is at it again. Norm Curnow was completing their summer-long cruiser-racer series in Plymouth, England.  Here’s what he had to say:

“We were first in the Round Scilly Isles Race, over the water and on handicap!  Plus, we were simply steaming over to the islands, flying actually!

On the way home, we were gently outboard motoring JAZZ.  She has no smelly inboard sense 1982!  She has done more then 50,000 miles since with nothing more than an outboard motor!  She's sailed New York to Caribbean at least 3 times; up and down the Caribbean at least 5 times; gone to Venezuela, Dominican Republic, Jamaica and Cuba; 5 trans-Atlantic’s; 5 Lands End, Bay of Biscay’s to the Mediterranean; at least 5 trans-Mediterranean’s, most of them far has the Greek island of Crete; lots of this was achieved single-handed, including  the trans-Atlantics.  Cheers, Stormin Norman!
