Club 420


Young sailors get schooled. Top sailors get challenged.
The Club 420 enables young sailors to learn teamwork, trapeze and spinnaker techniques that simply can’t be learned in single-handed boats. Safe for beginning sailors and quick enough to keep collegiate All-Americans interested, sailors graduating from the Optimist class will find the C420 to be manageable and a lot of fun.

Get a step ahead in team and fleet racing.
Progressive sailing associations are developing team racing and fleet racing events around their double-handed trainers. These new sailing challenges are keeping young sailors excited while building participation in junior programs

LaserPerformance has sold more than 2000 Club 420s to training programs around the nation. More than 100 high schools and colleges maintain fleets as well. The Club 420 Class Association publishes an informative newsletter, maintains class rules, and helps to promote events on the local, regional, and national levels. The racing and learning continues to improve as more clubs standardize to the Club 420 and participation grows at every level.
