Finn

An international Olympic Class dinghy since 1952, this fast singlehander is perfect for the heavier helm. 4.5 metres long with a big rig, this boat favours the strong sailor who can hike out the longest! Finnsters are a friendly bunch and welcome new members to this challenging class. Description by Nick Vosper
