The 420 is an established performance two person trapeze and spinnaker racing dinghy. There are 58,000 worldwide. This popular dinghy is sailed at school, club, open, national and international levels. There are many second hand boats available, active clubs and excellent tuition for all levels. Built in buoyancy tanks make the boat very safe even when inverted. The 420 is a youth development boat in Ireland and in 42 other countries. Most of the World's top sailors sailed in this class and easily moved on to succeed in other classes.
