The boat’s wide, flat hull shape provides stability at all points of sail, and her ample sailplan ensures plenty of smiles when the wind starts blowing. A two-person planing machine

Laser Performance C420 information

Unlike one-person dinghies, the Club 420 can carry a spinnaker when sailing off-the-breeze angles, but she requires a trapeze to counterbalance this extra horsepower. This premium demand on crew coordination makes the Club 420 an ideal platform for learning the ropes of two-person sailing, and delivers the speed and high-performance feel that keeps more experienced sailors physically and mentally engaged.

High schools, colleges, yacht clubs, and sailing associations maintain active Club 420 fleets nationwide, as the quick-but-forgiving design easily lends itself to the full spectrum of racing disciplines.

  • Kick-up rudder assembly allows for easy trolley launching.
  • Super-strong, non-tapered aluminum mast and over-sized rigging ensure worry-free sailing.
  • Rigging details include a 12:1 boomvang that’s routed astern and a 3:1 jib halyard for rig tuning.
  • Structurally reinforced bow and mast step help absorb beginner mistakes.
  • All hardware through-bolt mounted and backed with over-spec’ed hardware.
  • Ergonomic seating provides ample buoyancy in the event of a capsize.
  • Harken blocks and Marlow cordage packages help tame trimming duties.
