The latest #FinnTalks is from Simon Percival, the British class secretary © Robert Deaves

Over the past year, 12 #FINNTALKS have been published, conversations with Finn sailors around the world.

The latest one is with Simon Percival the Secretary of the British Finn Association talking about the recent Finn World Masters, Finn sailing in the UK and what attracts him to sail the boat.

The 12 sailors to date have been wide and varied from Olympians to youth sailors and from experienced hands to coaches, but all have a huge enthusiasm for the boat and the class, and all are well worth a watch.

They are all available on the Finn Class YouTube Channel - @TheFinnChannel - and also on FINN TV here

All the videos are below.

We are always looking for new subjects, so if you fancy sitting down for a one-to-one about your Finn story and about Finn sailing in your region, then please get in touch. Until then enjoy these first 12 conversations and watch out for the next one very soon - on our social media channels, or subscribe to the YouTube channel. #FINNTALKS 13 will be our new Finn Silver Cup champion, James Golden from the USA.
