Poole Yacht Club 420

The 420 is a double-handed boat that is great fun and also offers many physical and technical challenges for sailors to progress, normally having completed RYA level 3 or 4 on an Optimist or Topper. The crew can trapeze on a wire and so needs to wear a harness - this is great fun but also hard work. The helm steers the boat and works with the crew to make decisions on course and tactics. The 420 is a great introduction to double handed sailing with a high level of technical knowledge also required. More information can be found at 420 GBR Association
