Proposed amendment to future 420 Class Sailing Instructions

GBR 420 Class Class matters

To prolong the life of sails(especially the jib), the committee are proposing a change to the sailing instructions and class rules that would allow 2 sets of sails to be registered and used during class events as follows;


20.1 [DP] Each boat shall supply button numbers for up to 2 suits of sails at registration and only these sails shall be used in the regatta.

We would appreciate class members thoughts on this proposed amendment. For example for/against or should it be controlled in some way (flag ‘x’ flown when the wind is over 18knts allowing sails to be changed for the days racing) or left to the sailors discretion?

Please email Kelly at with your thoughts
