470 Race Officials Programme

Our Judges and Measurers Support Programme.


Since 2010, the International 470 Class launched the 470 Class Judges Program, an initiative to encourage the development of judges and identify judges who have the potential to achieve status as an WS International Judge. Support will also be provided from the International 470 Class or WS in the form of travel grants to attend events.
The International 470 Class is supporting the development of judges, particularly those who have sailed and competed in the 470 Class. We would like to identify judges who have experience of the 470 Class, either as a sailor or a coach and who would like to develop their career as a race official, with the intent being that they could apply for status as a WS International Judge.


APPLY NOW - All 470 National Class Associations are invited to put forward the names of individuals who they would like to nominate to the judges programme, by completing the Nomination Form and sending the form and a digital photo to: office@470.org


We actively support the development of measurers, both at a national status and those seeking to achieve WS International Status. If you would like to discuss becoming a measurer for the 470 Class email the 470 Class Chief Measurer Dimitris Dimou: dimitrisd@470.org
