The club 420 is the essential 2 person training dinghy used my the majority of youth sailing programs across the country. The boat is stable, fast, and this class association is very strong. The Club 420 features a single trapeze and spinnaker rig, while the club/collegiate 420 eliminates both for simplicity.
Fleets and regattas are widespread, especially on the east coast, and the 420 is also the choice of many high school & college sailing programs, including top teams like Boston College, Brown University, Yale, and more.
