Discover 420 Sailing, the International Two-Person Dinghy for Young Sailors!
The International 420 Class Association is proudly launching this 2019 promotional video today. We hope you like it and help us spread 420 Sailing worldwide
#Jointhe420class – The most popular two-person youth dinghy.
“The 420 video features some great footage and really defines the story of the popularity of the 420 Class in over 60 countries around the world,” commented José Massapina, 420 Class Vice-President responsible for development.
“The video speaks for itself about why the 420 is the perfect youth boat and an established choice for nation’s sailing programmes. The video has captured the essence of 420 sailing; the skills learnt, opportunities experienced and friends made, all mixed in with a huge amount of fun and enjoyment.
“The 420 continues to grow in popularity and as a Class we work hard to provide an affordable and accessible sailing choice, with excellent Championships, a toolkit of training resources and a strong national class association network around the world. Whatever your level of sailing, the 420 is the perfect youth choice,” Massapina concluded.
The 420 is easily accessible for those new to sailing as well as offering a technically challenging boat for those seeking perfection on the race track, and has trained many of the world’s best sailors. As the established boat of choice for two-person symmetric spinnaker dinghy sailing, and an easy step up from the Optimist and other junior classes, the 420 Class gives sailors the skills required whatever sailing choice they make next. Transitioning to Olympic sailing, keelboats, symmetric or asymmetric dinghy sailing in one hull or more, the 420 Class will equip young sailors with the skills, knowledge and confidence to be the best they can and most importantly enjoy sailing.
The 420 Class video compliments our package of online resources, including 420 to the Max and the 420 e-Book of Performance Exercises, which provide coaching and training tips and exercises for beginners to experts. Coming soon is the 420 Class Tuning Guide.
Step into the 420 Class and enjoy your sailing!
