Int. 420/ Optis
Australian 420 Class Association
Perfect blend of speed, manoeuvrability and ease – truly vice free and a joy to sail
Light and stiff foam sandwich construction.
Stiffness and strength lead to maximum transfer of power into speed.
Open transom gives a virtually self draining cockpit and the moulded self bailer quickly removes any remaining water
Ergonomic cockpit design for comfortable hiking
Toe straps adjustable for both height and reach
Thwart gives the crew a comfortable light wind position.
Wide hull allows leverage to be generated equally by both sailors, helms can be big or small
Simple and efficient interior layout – principle controls are led to either side of the boat, so that the helm or crew can “change gear”
Pivoting centreboard and rudder mean the boat can be raced in any estuary and make launching easy.
Sophisticated GRP sandwich construction gives strong, light, high performance foils.
Light weight Selden mast uses a section especially developed for the RS400
Mast bend controlled with a deck level screw and adjustable spreaders
Rake and sideways bend are further instantly variable via the jib halyard led back to the crew
High quality sails with long competitive life
Fully battened main and jib for shape stability, to reduce flogging and extend their life
Perfect match between the mast and mainsail give exceptional power control. Coupled with the high volume hull these features ensure a wide competitive crew weight range
Asymmetric spinnaker – easy to use, fast, fun and highly tactical.
Evolutionary bowsprit can be canted to windward, allowing the RS400 to sail very fast at virtually any downwind angle.
