I'm thinking of purchasing a J80. Can anyone tell me how high they can point upwind on average?

We sail our J-80 in mixed PHRF fleet for the most part (J92, J105, J100, Olson 30, etc). In winds under 10kts we had a hard time pointing with the fleet using the class jib. We have added a 145% genoa and the boat points great. We love the boat and would recommend it but if you sail PHRF the rating can be a challenge in some conditions.
