Many things are being remembered today, but for Finn sailors it is particularly poignant as today was the day that the 2020 Finn Gold Cup was scheduled to start in Palma, Mallorca. To remember what Finn sailing looks like we put together the first of several short videos from last year's Finn Gold Cup in Melbourne, a world away from where we find ourselves today.

We thought it was also a good opportunity to review some of the more popular Finn videos over the years, some long and some short. The Finn class YouTube channel is now approaching 2 million views and 55,000 hours of viewing from nearly 600 uploaded videos. By October when the Finn Gold Cup has been rescheduled (2-10 Oct, at Club Nautic Arenal on Mallorca) hopefully, there will be some more great content to show from the ultimate Olympic class.

There are many more videos and they all can be found at finnclass.org/finn-tv (when Youtube get their stuff back together).
