About This Activity

Upon completion of the 420 Blue program or according to skill level, students will be invited to participate in our 420 Red program. Concepts covered in the 420 Red program will include upwind, downwind and reaching tactical strategies; proficient roll tacking and jibing; proficient spinnaker and trapeze work; advanced boat handling; acceleration techniques; and an introduction to team racing. Previous sailing instruction at NCS is a prerequisite and members of the 420 Red Class are considered members of the 420 Racing Team. The class is conducted in a way that emphasizes team participation and coherence, and all team-members are encouraged to participate on the team for as many weeks as possible, with a minimum required commitment of two weeks. To encourage our racing sailors to spend as much time on the water as possible, our 420 red sailors will be issued a 25% credit on any 420 Red session booked after their first two weeks of sailing.
