First up is the Sailing World Cup Hyeres, with racing starting on Tuesday 25 April.
Nine of the 39 entries are Olympians from Rio, including the return of France's Jonathan Lobert as he begins his campaign towards Tokyo.
This will be his first regatta since the 2016 Olympics. The fleet includes an encouraging number of new sailors to the class as the quad gets properly underway.
After a few days off the fleet will assemble just down the road in Marseille for the Open and U23 European Championship.
After that is the Delta Lloyd Regatta in Medemblik, before things really heat up with the Finn World Masters in Barbados.
The class will trial a new format at the Europeans in Marseille, based on the experience of the format tested in Palma last month. Final details are being worked out and will be announced soon.
