Club 420 Fall Sailing

Club 420 Fall Sailing

Sail Newport has launched a new program for race training in Club 420s with trapeze and spinnakers. Seasoned 420 sailors are welcome, but much of the early training and lessons will be geared to an orientation of double-handed sailing. Sailors will learn both positions of the boat. Pairings are welcome, but expect to sail with others. We will learn foundational double-handed skills and concepts and get sailors ready for Sail Newport’s Halloween Howl on October 27.

12:30 – 3:30pm Sundays
  • September 29
  • October 6
  • October 13
  • October 20 and the Halloween Howl on October 27

Race experience is required. Club 420 experience is great, but seasoned optimist or laser racers are welcome to come see what double-handed sailing is all about. This could also be a great opportunity for high school sailors who do not get a chance to learn trapeze and spinnaker flying skills.

  • 2 training days : $80
  • 4 training days & HH: $240
  • HH coaching only: $90 (plus regatta entry fee)
