AD FEATURE: Art of Racing Mach III Finn booms are the choice of champions.  
Since they were first launched into the Finn fleet three years ago, Art of Racing booms have become the boom of choice for the front of the fleet. 2018 became a breakthrough year for the fledgling company after some solid recommendations and results in the previous year. The high point was the 2018 Finn Gold Cup in Aarhus where the booms were used on seven out of the top 10 overall, including the top four.

Swedish Olympic medals in Finn

Finn is a Swedish design and was designed in 1949 by Uppsala sailor Rickard Sarby.  
To announce a new Olympic single-man race for the Olympic Games in Helsinki in 1952, a designer contest had been announced.
Seven contest entries were in place in Helsinki in September 1950, when it was raced about which of the dinghys, who would be the new one-man dinghy on the Olympic sailing arena.
Rickard Sarby called his "Fint" contest contribution, which won most of the substitutions and the case was ready. The Finnish organizers then wished that the new Olympic one-man jersey would be called Finndinghy.

At the Olympic Sails in Helsinki in 1952, Rickard Sarby sailed a bronze medal. Won the Olympic Gold Medal that time did Paul Elvström.

When it comes to Swedish Olympic medals, "it's been a bit slow" and not until OS 2000 in Sydney, Australia - we could count on another Olympic Finn medal- when Fredrik Lööf sailed a bronze medal!

Unfortunately, at the Olympic sailing in Enoshima, Japan 2020, Finnjollen is on the OS program last time and then for the 18th time.
An amazing achievement of a 70 year old construction!

Because Finnjollen has such a wide spread as it has, it will hopefully also in the future - sailed by many sailors who find it fun to sail Finn, even if it is no longer an Olympic class.

What is Finn-dinghy?
Logo
The dinghy was designed by Rickard Sarby 1949 and has been on every Olympic Games since 1952. It is the largest one-man dinghy you can sail and many famous helmsmen have a record of the class. It is technologically advanced and evolving. The good atmosphere between finn-sailors are well known. Join us!
