Club 420: Made in Rhode Island, USA


The Club 420 by LaserPerformance – The Choice for Youth and Collegiate SailingThe Club 420 enables young sailors to learn teamwork, trapeze and spinnaker techniques that simply can’t be learned in single-handed boats. Safe for beginning sailors and quick enough to keep collegiate All-Americans interested, sailors graduating from the Optimist class will find the C420 to be manageable and a lot of fun.
