470 General News

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
Gdynia, POL
22-29 August


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
2-10 October
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
Vilamoura, POR
5-13 March

2021 European Championship
Hyeres, FRA
30 April -8 May

2021 Junior World Championship
Sanremo, ITA
11-18 July

2021 Junior European Championship

Thank you for your patience,
