2021 470 EUROPEAN CHAMPIONSHIPS UNDERWAY02 May 2021
81 470’s from 25 countries will be competing from 30 April to 7 May in the men's, women's and the new mixed fleets for the respective European Champion titles in Vilamoura, Portugal.
34 out of the 40 Tokyo Olympic teams are racing in the men’s and women’s championships, along with a very strong mixed fleet in the first ever Mixed 470 European Championship held by the Class.
International 470 Class President Andreas Kosmatopoulos commented: “Our European Championships are the last major event before the Olympic sailors head off to Enoshima, but we are far from over since Italy will host the Junior World and the Junior European Championships plus the Master's Cup in July and August. With the great support of Vilamoura Sailing in the last three months, we have managed to keep 470 competition alive against the odds by running the 470 World Championships, Warm up and coaches' regattas and taking part in the Vilamoura Grand Prix series. The competition is on a very high level and as we are in the final turn on the road to the Tokyo Olympic Games, the teams are eager to close their campaigns by winning the prestigious European titles” .
PROW MEDIA TEAM will support Vilamoura Sailing and will be live streaming the races from the 4th of May, which you will be able to follow via our Social Media channels.
