Head over to our YouTube channel for the first of our Finn talks.

In the first, we talked to 20 year old Peter Sangmeister, to try and get an insight on what it feels like to sail the Finn Class and what are the expectations for what's next, especially as Miami gets ready to host the Finn Gold Cup in January 2023.

Then, we had a chat with Zsombor Berecz, Olympic silver medalist, World and Europeans gold medalist about the upcoming European Championship in Csopak, Lake Balaton.

More coming...stay tuned

Head over to the Finn Channel here to see both these talks as well as the 100s of videos added over the past 12 years.

World Ranking List

There has been a lot of positive and helpful feedback, including corrections, received after the first release of the new Finn World Ranking List.

As expected, there were a few minor errors and omissions, along with name spellings to correct and all this will be incorporated in the second release in the new year along with results from events since September.

If you missed it, head over here to check the first list.

We are currently compiling the World Tour for Finns which will list all the ranking events for 2023.
