The World’s Top Youth Boat

The 420 offers great development for sailors in the two-person disciplines – most of the World's top sailors sailed in this class and easily moved on to succeed in other classes, and enjoy Olympic and big boat careers.

The GBR 420 Class Association is the National Class and organises training and events across the whole of the UK for sailors of all abilities.
