Classic Finn Organization

Published on April 12th, 2023

The Finn Class is enjoying a renaissance in the USA, with an effort now underway to source the long and forgotten boats and bring them back to the water. Story by David Hemenway for WindCheck magazine:

A group of United States East Coast Finn sailors have started a new organization called the Classic Finn Organization and have developed a website at Our goal is to revitalize older, often unused, Finns and get them out sailing.

Classic Finns are a great way to go sailing at a reasonable cost in a fantastic boat. This website provides information on available Finns and equipment, in addition to upcoming Finn events. These will include events supported by the US Finn Association as well as local clubs. We encourage sailors to save these great old boats and form fleets of classic Finns in their areas.

While we are currently active in the Eastern U.S., we look forward to expanding to other areas that are interested in classic Finns. The US Finn Association has welcomed classic Finns to sail in their regattas with more modern boats. – Full report
