Finns Rally at the 2nd annual Miami Sailing Week

The Miami Sailing Week, a fixture of the Biscayne Bay winter sailing season, provided three days with eight quality windward-leeward races organized by a cracker-jack on-the-water race committee that managed to keep the starting line and windward legs fair, and wisely abandoned the first race when winds of 30 knots with  a 40-degree wind shift

BYC Finn Spring Series

Buccaneer yacht club’s Finn Spring Series first day of racing was held under partly sunny skies with a north wind of 8-10 kts. The best and awesome pro Commmdore Jim Hunter and his able assistant and videographer Noel Miller ran 5 great races for the fleet. Competition was tight which resulted in 3 different winners

March 7 Mission Bay Yacht Club Short Course Bay Races

Overcast skies greeted 9-Finn sailors for the March 7 Mission Bay Yacht Club Short Course Bay Races. The wind direction was more out of the south than usual but the race committee was still able to set a nice Windward/Leeward/Windward course. Race 1 got off to a good start with guys taking a hard left

This is the home of the 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 boat handling 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.
