420 CLASS SECURES ITS PLACE AT CANADA'S PREMIER MULTI-CLASS EVENT
Reflecting the growing take-up to sailing the 420 Class across the USA and Canada, SAIL CORK, Canada's premier multi-class regatta will include the 420 at this year's event in Kingston, 13-17 August 2017.
On 15 March 2017, CORK announced that the International 420 Class will be added to the class line-up at the CORK International Regatta this year. The I420 fleets are developing in the USA and Canada and inclusion in Canada's premier event is a natural progression.
In the words of Agustin Ferrario, Head Race Coach for Royal Nova Scotia Yacht Squadron / Canadian Sport Centre Atlantic, "I believe the International 420 is a smart step for young Canadian sailors looking to take their double handed skills to the next level. With the increased interest on Youth Worlds and the 420 worlds coming next summer 2018, it only makes sense to support this opportunity for Canadians. CORK is the biggest youth event in Canada with a fantastic venue to host these fast & affordable boats which most of the world's top sailors sailed and easily moved on to succeed in Olympic and big boat careers.“
August 13 – Check-in/Registration
