Statement from the International Finn Association

The International Finn Association (IFA) is extremely disappointed to see the decision taken today at the World Sailing AGM in Sarasota, USA, to exclude any event options for the Finn in favour of adopting the Mixed Two-Person Keelboat.  

Most of all we are very disappointed for the many committed Finn sailors affected by this decision, especially the young sailors who have had their campaign ambitions for 2024 cruelly shattered.
We feel the Finn class has become collateral damage in the quest for gender equality and Olympic TV rights income for World Sailing.
It is a great injustice that many of the best athletes in the sport of sailing no longer have an avenue to the Olympics, and we honestly feel the Olympics will be poorer as a result of the exclusion of the Finn.
We know the Finn class will continue to thrive and for the time being we will focus on supporting our athletes as they prepare for Tokyo 2020. In the coming months, the IFA will work towards finding a way back for the Finn on the Olympic programme. // Balazs Hajdu, IFA President

Finn Class News

Global spread, equipment longevity and youth appeal.  
As the following brief glimpse of Finn class activity reveals, there are a growing number of nations and record level entries in many events across the world. 2018 has been another epic season for the Finn class. At a time when sailing is reported by many to be in decline, the Finn class is continuing to expand. It provides a level of performance, accessibility and ambition that is hugely attractive across the age range and across many nations. Not only are the senior fleets as deep and competitive as they have been for a generation, but there is continuous growth in youth appeal, and exponential growth in Masters fleets across the world. Love for the Finn is as strong as ever.

Finndraft 2018/2019

We Finn sailors want to share with us the most fun we know, namely Finn sailing.  
We believe that the more we become, the more fun it becomes and our idea is that Finn sailing is a positive drug where you have once tried it is difficult to end. Therefore, we now want to attract our already active sailors to lend their boats to young as old, pro or amateur, all in order to attract more sailors to our class.
Who can join?
All active members of the Swedish Finn Association can compete.
