470 MANAGEMENT COMMITTEE UPDATE - AUGUST 4, 202004 Aug 2020
Dear 470 sailors, coaches, class members, and friends:
This is the latest update from the 470 Class Management Committee, following further discussions with our event organizers.
2020 Major Class Events
2020 Junior World & Junior European Championships
Given the current situation in Europe and the surge of Covid-19 cases almost everywhere, this event is CANCELLED. It is unfortunate that we came again so close to the event’s opening but the Class is putting safety above everything else and does not wish to bring athletes and support teams in a difficult situation.
2020 World & European Championships
Palma de Mallorca, ESP
Hosted by CN Arenal
The current global situation forces the CANCELLATION of the World Championship, and this event for the moment remains on the table as the OPEN EUROPEAN CHAMPIONSHIP only. In addition, Junior European titles will be awarded if there are 5 or more entries in each of the respective fleets.
The situation will be under continuous assessment and in one month’s time there will be further decisions taken and announced. By the end of August 2020 we will publish the safety protocol that will be in force if the regatta will take place, so that everybody will know in advance about the various measures that will apply in Palma.
2021 Major Class Events
The four of the five major class events –the Master’s Cup dates are still to be decided- will be as follows:
2021 World Championship
2021 European Championship
30 April -8 May
2021 Junior World Championship
2021 Junior European Championship
Thank you for your patience,
Int. 470 Class Association
