420 fleet

I wanted to go for a short sail today but sailing requires a breeze.  Instead I took a look around the boatyard and ended up at the junior club.  The 420 dinghies were lined up awaiting abuse Monday from our junior sailors.

As a club dinghy 420's are great and perhaps more important, durable.  While 29er's are increasingly popular with racers, they would be a nightmare to maintain in a sailing school situation.


  1. Ah.. I do miss my Laser
    Strange I haven't even gone boating since moving to Vancouver :-(
    Nothing like going for a sail in early May in Lake Ontario with a blue wetsuit and finding you can't tell where the suit ends and the bare feet start. :-)

    Never did try the 420
