I’m reaching out to the class to see if anyone has interest in sailing St. Patrick’s day weekend ( Friday March 17 to Sunday March 19th) in Sarasota, FL AT the Sarasota Sailing Squadron. We need to try for 7 boats. We can opt to do a 3 day or a 2 day regatta. The
This is the home of North American Finn Sailing where you will find our race calendar, information on regattas, sailing technique and advice, a forum & marketplace plus all the info you need to start Finn sailing.
The Finn is an outstanding boat originally designed by Rickard Sarby for a contest to find a boat for Scandinavian sailing and the 1952 Olympics. Since then it has been featured in every Olympics.
An outstanding technical boat that favors boathandling and tactics over straight line speed. With the unlimited pumping downwind in over 10 kts it is a truly physical boat that rewards the athlete willing to work hard.
Most dinghies are built for smaller stature people but not so the Finn. The Finn is a big man’s boat with average crew weight over 200 lbs.
The great attraction of the Finn is that you don’t need a brand new boat to be competitive – top regattas are regularly won by 10-yr-old boats.
A growing route in for sailors on a budget is the ‘Classic with Carbon’ option – any pre-1985 hull super-charged with a second-hand modern rig. Classic boats are warmly welcomed at all NA Finn Class events and are often seen in the top 10 with the Modern Race Boats.
