Class History

With over 3000 boats and regattas from Maine to California, the Club 420 class is growing rapidly. The popular double-handed dinghy introduces junior sailors to the spinnaker and trapeze. It also teaches the importance of teamwork. The Club 420 plays a large roll in intercollegiate (ICSA) and Interscholastic (ISSA) sailing, with many college programs choosing the 420 because of its performance and durability. 420-sailplan.gif
