The Zim C420 is a fun boat for juniors stepping up to double-handed and adult sailors alike, serving as a stepping stone for Olympic class racers as well. It is the ultimate boat for learning to race as a team, and ideal for youth to master the spinnaker and trapeze. Zim is among three elite approved 420 builders, and the Zim C420 continues to prove itself on the course with victories at local, regional, national, and North American championship regattas. Now standardized among clubs, it is the popular racing and education solution among community sailing programs.
