470 and 420 Joint Programmes for nations where sailing is emerging or less active: encourage sailors to participate in Class Championships, improve coaching levels and support the provision of equipment
André Cornu Grant EUR1000 grant to each of the winnning crews of the boys and girls double-handed dinghy event at the Volvo Youth Sailing ISAF World Championship.
470 Junior Support Programme Free entry fees to one of the 470 Championships for the following season to each of the youngest women crew and youngest men crew (combined age of skipper and crew) competing in the 2013 470 Junior World Championships (under 22 years of age) who qualify to the Gold Fleet final series.
420 Support Programme Because we want the best sailors to sail the 470, and supporting the natural transition from the 420 to the 470 we have decided to extend our support by offering free entry fees to the top three girls and boys teams at the 2012 420 World Championships in Austria to either the 2013 470 Junior World Championships or the 2013 470 Junior European Championships. If only one of the crew members competes, then the entry fee contribution will be 50%.
"You Can Help" Programme You can donate to this project in which we collect second hand equipment in good condition from sailors that no longer use it and give it to sailors from emerging sailing nations.

Catch up with our 2010 Development Programmes and joint project with the 420 Class in Angola, or go back to 2009 and read our Oveview of the 2009 470 Development Programme
