The Finn legacy began with the Finnish Yachting Associations 1948 search for a new sailing dinghy. Rickard Sarby's winning design, based on a Nordic double-ended sailing canoe, quickly became the Olympic singlehanded men's dinghy for the 1952 Games in Helsinki and has appeared in every Summer Games since.
With an unstayed mast and 10.6 sq. meters (115 sq. ft) of sail area, the physically demanding 4.5 m (14'9") Finn is closely associated with many renowned sailors. John Bertrand and Russell Coutts, the only two helmsmen to beat an American Defender in the America's Cup, as well as the legendary yachtsman Paul Elvstrom, are all Olympic medalists in the class.
In this article we look at the Harken blocks which can be used on the Finn to give you a competitive edge on the water.
Below is a diagram which shows all of the Harken block part numbers for the Finn. All of these are in stock and available at Dinghy Rope.
