420 Training Videos and e-book

The International 420 Association have produced an excellent 420 training video  “420 to the MAX” which some sailors may already know.  They have also recently added a 420 training “e-book” aimed at both coaches and sailors – this has lots of exercises to improve your 420 sailing, with links to videos explaining the exercises.

420 to the Max – Free online training video:

In May 2011, the International 420 Class Association launched a free online Training Video to provide coaching and training tips for both the beginner and experienced 420 sailors.


420 e-book – Performance training:

The International 420 Class has launched the Exercise e-Book, a new online training resource targeted at providing world class training techniques and strategies on Performance Improvement for Coaches and Sailors. The e-book provides a selection of carefully chosen performance training exercises, with accompanying video and commentary to provide sailors and coaches with a step by step path to improving their skills.
