Sail-World.com : Finnfare magazine March 2013 edition published
Finnfare magazine March 2013 edition published


'Cover photo: Jorge Rodrigues at the Brazilian Championship'    Ale Socci
The International Finn Association's magazine Finnfare March 2013 issue (No. 143) has been published.

This first issue of 2013 is packed full of what makes the Finn class so special. There continues to be growth in Finn sailing across much of the world as we move out of one Olympiad and into the next. It is therefore perhaps appropriate to first focus on Brazil, where the development of the fleet over the past few years has been a great reward for all the effort that has been put in and a sign of the great things to come in the run-up to Rio 2016.

A new quadrennial also means a new influx of young sailors, keen with enthusiasm and ambition, and in this issue we talk to Australian Jake Lilley, who medalled at his first event and will be on the European circuit this year with very high ambitions. His enthusiasm for the Finn is typical of the latest influx of sailors. He said, 'To now be sailing the true Olympic boat is a great privilege and there is nothing else I would rather do.'

Another first for the Finn class is the International University Sailing Cup, being held in Moscow. This is great initiative arising from a great opportunity. The Dinghy Academy project in Valencia is also featured along with another development project, this time between the Russian and Italian class associations, the Fantastica Finn Academy at Malcesine on Lake Garda.

There is a lot to look forward to over the next four seasons as the fleet prepares for Rio 2016. The class will continue to bring you the best of the news and pictures from around the world as the journey continues.

However, if you want to know what is really going in the class you only have to read the reports from South Africa, Brazil, Russia, New Zealand, Belgium, Norway, France and many other countries to see that there is not just a revival of some fleets but a positive explosion.

This growth is not just by chance. The class is starting to reap the rewards of many years of investment, development and encouragement. Do young people of today aspire to sail the Finn? Of course they do, and many are realising their dreams the world over with new Finns available worldwide on a level not seen for 40 years.
