470 SAILS SUPPORT PROGRAM 2024
The International 470 Class Association continues the 470 Sails Support program where specific teams are able to buy brand new sails at reduced prices, thanks also to the participation of our sailmakers.
Specifically, the International 470 Class Association contributes with a EUR 500 voucher per set, which is sent directly to the sailmaker which will be selected by each team. Furthermore, sailmakers who have joined the program as our partners are offering additional discounts or even free shipping (see below).
The program provides for 10 sets of sails in 2023. Priority is given to Junior mixed teams from emerging or new 470 nations, Olympic teams from emerging nations and teams transitioning from the 420 into the 470 class.
Please send your request to email@example.com along with detailed information about your team and your intended competition program in the 470 class. The deadline for applications for the 2023 program is 15th November 2023 at 22:00 UTC.
Sailmakers who have partnered with the Int. 470 Class are offering the following from their side as part of the program:
North Sails* Japan: 20% discount on the initial price plus free freight
Olimpic Sails: 20% discount on the initial price
Zaoli Sails: EUR 500 discount on the initial price
* All requests to North Sails Lofts must be handled by the Japanese NS loft
Other sailmakers are welcome to join the program by sending a request to firstname.lastname@example.org.
