This spirited, but durable double-handed one-design forms the base of active local, high school, and collegiate sailing programs throughout North America. Used as a stepping stone to Olympic class racers, the C420 not only allows youth sailors to master the spinnaker and trapeze, but teaches them how to race as a team. Currently there are over 5,000 class-compliant boats on the water.
The Club 420 has three approved builders: Laser Performance, Zim Sailing, and Sturgis Boatworks.
