The GBR 420 Class Association is the National Class of the International 420 Class. The Class run by a Committee elected every year by its members and includes a minimum of 2 Sailor Reps as the Class truly belongs to the sailors.
Why Join Us?
The 420 Class has a fantastic pedigree of developing world class sailors; in 2019 Via Heathcote & Millie Boyle were crowned Ladies 420 World Champions!
Our aim is to provide accessible regional training and racing throughout the UK. The spirit in which races and events are held is almost as important as the rules to which we race. The Class has chosen to adopt the RYA Racing Charter as a fundamental policy on how it wishes to see the spirit of racing within the sport and supports the RYA;s Behaviours & Values.

Our Sailor Reps
The role of the Sailor Reps is to be the voice of the sailors on the committee; they attend all committee meetings and are involved in all committee communication to ensure that the Class is run for the sailors. They manage the sailor WhatsApp group to ensure all the sailors keep in touch and can be contacted via their contact details.
