Dear sailors, coaches and 470 Class members and friends,
As you know, this past week has seen a flurry of decisions taken by the IOC, Tokyo2020, and World Sailing - all of which have dramatically changed the landscape of our sport moving forward. While there are still many challenging questions, please rest assured that the 470 Class Management Committee is working tirelessly to get you reliable answers as quickly as possible. These are trying times, but also an opportunity to showcase the strength and adaptability of the International 470 Class.
Today [24 March 2020] the International Olympic Committee and the Tokyo 2020 Organising Committee issued a joint statement announcing the postponement of the Tokyo 2020 Olympic Games.
Due to the COVID-19 Pandemic and the latest situation developments, and following instructions of the Spanish and Balearic Government, as well as the recommendations from WS, the 470 Class, together with Club Nautic Arenal, are obliged to postpone the 470 Worlds which were scheduled to take place in el Arenal, from the 13th to the 21st of March.
The International 470 Class Association through the development and support programs offers free coaching and rib support during the Junior 470 World and Junior European championships.
