The club 420 is a 4.20 meter-long (13.8 feet), double handed dingy with both a main and a jib. These boats provide a great learning opportunity for sailors of all skill levels, serving as the base for many high school and collegiate sailing teams, while also existing as a simple, safe leaning boat for beginners. The EYC has 18 420s that are used for lessons and racing. Weekly series races are both fun and competitive, often including many boats out on the race course.
Fleet activities revolve around the 2 weekly series races Friday night and Sunday afternoon. Additionally, look for the 420 fleet to work on adding chalk talks before and/or after series races and the junior regatta. If you have and questions or suggestions, please contact 420 fleet captain, Roger Waleffe, at 420fleetcaptain@EYC.org.
