The Club 420 is a strict One-Design youth boat. The Rules of the Class Association are "closed." Anything not specifically permitted by the Rules is prohibited. It can be raced with two or three people, however, the same number of people must race in each race. The Club 420 is a three sail, trapeze boat that is for one crew member (if racing with three).
