NZ 420 Association

Welcome to the New Zealand International 420 Class Association

Dedicated to the support, development and growth of the International 420 Class and its sailor members in New Zealand.

The International 420 is a great next step that teaches sailors double handed sailing with the trapeze and spinnaker and allows them to gain a solid understanding of the technical aspects of boat and rig tuning. It can sail in a wide range of conditions and provides a solid foundation for moving ahead into any senior class.


Since 2000, New Zealand sailors have won the 420 Open World Championship three times (2006, 2007, & 2018) and twice won the 420 Womens World Championship (2007 and 2009).
