History of the Finn

The Finn was born from the hand of Swedish canoe designer Rickard Sarby in 1949 as his entry in a design competition to select a new monotype dinghy for the 1952 Olympics Games in Helsinki, Finland.  
Whatever else he was thinking on that day, he cannot have imagined that sailors across the whole world would still be enjoying and racing the same design 60 years later. In 2012 the Finn will be sailed for the 16th time at an Olympic Games and is the longest serving dinghy in the Olympic Regatta.

Ps. After this article was published on IFA's website, Finn has participated in another Olympic regatta - 2016 in Rio de Janerio and then for the 17th time in a row.
How it will be for Finn in the future is highly uncertain!
What we know today is that Finn is not included in the Olympic program 2024, but IFA is working very hard to get Finn back in the Olympic context.
Among others, Gerardo Seeliger (President of Honor IFA President 1981-1997) is a driving force in this work.
