The concept of the 1720 Sportsboat arose as a result of the demise in handicapped rating systems, as a basis for providing quality club level and International keelboat racing. The original idea was conceived by a group of committed racing members of the Royal Cork Yacht Club, on the South coast of Ireland, the club was founded in 1720 and as such is the oldest Yacht Club in the world. The boat took the name 1720 from the clubs year of foundation
