420 Green Fleet

420 Green Fleet

SKU: 420GF

Meets: M - F, 9:00 - 4:30.


The 420 Green Fleet is designed to teach students basic 420 sailing and racing. Students in this class have completed 4-8 weeks of Beginners and have been recommended to move up.


420 green fleeters sail GBSA boats. All sailors join as individual members-- coaches pair students to sail with one another. At GBSA, we believe it is best for students at this level to sail with multiple partners and learn both skippering and crewing.


The racing staff will be evaluating pairs in this group at regular intervals to guide instruction, find the right fit for each sailor, and gauge mastery of basic skills. 


**The class is offered in 4 week and 8 week blocks, however, it is strongly advised to register for the full 8 week season.**


**There is no requirement to supply a private boat for this class.**


  • Cancellation Policies



    GBSA’s operational budget is entirely based on the tuition we collect each season. As a non profit, we aim to keep enrollment costs as low as possible while being able to fund our operation from year to year. As such, we can only offer limited refunds for customers in specific cases. Please read the policies below for more information and contact the Program Director at director@gbsa.info with any questions.

    Please note: We will not process any refund requests for sailors who miss less than ½ of their class days. We do not prorate for any missed sailing time. You may contact the Program Director to inquire about setting up a make-up day, but this is not guaranteed.


    Request for a refund due to an emergency: Please contact the GBSA Treasurer at treasurer@gbsa.info and explain the cause for cancellation. We will work with you to find a fair solution.


    Changing classes: Whenever possible, we will accommodate class changes for your sailor. If we are unable to move your student into another class due to capacity reasons, and you therefore need to unenroll your sailor, we will process requests using the policies outlined above.
