Finn One Design

The Finn dinghy is the men’s single-handed, cat-rigged Olympic class for sailing. It was designed by Swedish canoe. Designer, Rickard Sarby, in 1949 for the 1952 Summer Olympics in Helsinki. Since the 1952 debut of the boat, the design has been in every summer Olympics. Making it one of the most prolific Olympic sailboats. It is the longest serving dinghy in the Olympic Regatta. It currently fills the slot for the Heavyweight Dinghy at the Olympic games. It is a physically demanding boat to race at the highest levels. The class now allows unlimited boat rocking and sail pumping when the wind is above 10 knots.
