J/22s are available primarily through StFYC-organized racing, instruction and related practices. “Related practices” on J/22s are (a) built into an event schedule and/or authorized by official race documents, or (b) special training for team members preparing to represent StFYC at an upcoming challenge. All practice sessions must be arranged in advance through the Race Office and have an approved practice plan.
Special arrangements may be made through the Race Office to charter a boat for use in a non-StFYC event. Unfortunately, J/22s are not available for pleasure sailing on windy SF Bay.
Charter fees associated with StFYC-organized events are either incorporated into overall entry fees or, in some cases, kept separate for administrative purposes.
