There a certain white and red J/35 that you’ve probably seen at almost every Bay Area race. Jarlen has been a staple of YRA and coastal racing for almost 30 years. The boat is owned by Dr. Bob Bloom, who has played a role in training generations of new sailors. "Bob has been a huge influence on my development as a big-boat racer," said former Jarlen crew member Viktor German.
We profiled the boat and her owner in this month’s Sightings.
