The class is not recognized by World Sailing or the International 420 Class Association and cannot be used at I420 class events. It is a strongly enforced class boat which the basis for the Club 420 class which has hundreds of local events and championship events throughout North America. The boats are very similar in appearance, although the club 420 is slightly stronger, heavier and less refined. A key difference is the decreased flexibility of the mast in the Club 420. Originally created by the Harken Brothers (Vanguard Boats) in the US they acquired a license to build the International 420 however they ended up producing the Club 420.
