The 420 is a two person, strict one design racing dinghy with three sails and one trapeze. All hulls and foils are identical which ensures that boat speeds are potentially equal.

Skill in helming, boat handling and tactics are therefore a prime factor in sailing a 420. It is an ideal boat for male and female sailors who move from junior classes.

The 420 Class is also recognised as a World Youth Class providing an opportunity for sailors to represent Australia. Boats range from $500 to $14,000.
