Blue Jay is a class of sailboat used primarily in the Northeastern United States. It is generally sailed with two people and features a mainsail, a jib, and a spinnaker. It is approximately 14 feet (4.2 m) long, usually the next step in junior dinghy racing from Optimists. Sailors between 12 and 18 years of age usually sail the craft, although it is also big enough for adults. It is sailed at yacht clubs from New Jersey to Connecticut. It is currently being phased out at a few of these yacht clubs and being replaced by the Pixel.

The Blue Jay is the training boat for the Lightning.
