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

Sailed well.. they can point straight into the wind...
get one... you will love it and suddenly you will have more friends and crew as they will love it too!

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.
