470 General News


23 May 2020

Dear 470 sailors, coaches, class members, and friends:
Since our last communication with you, the International 470 Class Management Committee has had another round of calls with our event organizers. This is the latest update:


This news belongs to
2020 470 Junior World & European Championships
This news belongs to
2020 470 Open European Championship
This news belongs to
2021 470 Open European Championship

Pending 2020 Major Class Events - Proposed & Not Final

These dates represent our class’ best intentions and are by no mean final. All plans are fluid and completely dependent on the evolution of the global situation before us. 

2020 Junior World Championships
Gdynia, POL
22-29 August

2020 Open European Championship 
Hyeres, FRA
12-19 September

2020 World Championship 
Mallorca, ESP
2-10 October 
Hosted by CN Arenal

Note: The Junior Europeans will be hosted as an event in combination with the Junior Worlds or the Open Europeans. However, the class also reserves the option to award both junior titles from within the rankings of the senior Worlds and Open Europeans.  This announcement is pending.

Final Announcement on 2020 Major Events

The final call on the 2020 events will be made around the end of June. At that time we will announce if events are going forward, any pertinent changes, or unfortunate cancellations.

European Olympic Qualifier

No new information at this time. We will announce any news as soon as we are able.

2021 Major Class Events
We have agreed with the organizers of the 2021 Worlds in Vilamoura, POR to move the dates forward to March 5-13, 2021.  The dates and venue of the Open Europeans are still under consideration. Again, more information pending our June announcements.

Next Announcement 

A further call will be made the week of June 15th when the 470 class and event organizers will assess the latest developments on travel restrictions, quarantine requirements, and any World Sailing directives. If new developments should arise in the meantime, we will update you as soon as possible.

Thank you for your patience,

Management Committee
Int. 470 Class Association
