Two Finn magazines just published offer some great reading at home

by Robert Deaves 24 Mar 20:24 GMT

While there is not much Finn sailing going on at present there is plenty to read about in the latest two magazines from the Finn class. The March issue of FINNFARE has just been published, while the 2020 issue of the Finn Masters Magazine was published in February.

Josh Junior features on the cover of the March 2020 issue of FINNFARE, a reminder of the relatively carefree days just a few months ago during the Finn Gold Cup in Melbourne, Australia. If and when he gets to defend that title is still unsure.

This issue also includes a technical analysis of boom stiffness, reports from the North American and South American Continental qualifiers, reports from Finn regattas worldwide and an extensive calendar of events, now mainly outdated, for 2020.

The 2020 Finn Masters Magazine features Filipe Silva, the 2019 Finn European Masters champion on the cover. After a successful year, the Master sailors were looking forward to their 50th anniversary year this year, but celebrations have already have been curtailed due to the cancellation of the 2020 Finn World Masters in the Netherlands.

With in-depth reports from the 2019 Finn World Masters and Finn European Masters, this issue also includes interviews with Fredrik Teghned, from Sweden, and Michael Staal, from Denmark, on the future direction of the class and competing in the Masters events. They have a wide range of interesting thoughts on where the class should be heading, and well worth a close read.
