FINAL SERIES COMMENCED IN STRONG WINDS ON DAY 3 OF 2019 JUNIOR WORLDS IN PORTOROZ

04 Jul 2019

We wished for more wind and we got it! After the proper warm-up in the gentle sea breeze on the first two days of our Junior World Championship it was time for some action. The NE bora wind came as a refreshment, it cooled the air a bit, and provided great sailing conditions in steady 13-18 knots, in the outer loop gusting even up to 25 kts, with waves that offered great downwind surfing to the more experienced crews.

RACE DAY 2 SET TO BE ANOTHER LIGHT AND SHIFTY WIND DAY

03 Jul 2019

Today’s second racing day began similar to yesterday’s. The start was initially scheduled for 1pm, but since the sea breeze was late again, the AP flag went down at around half past 12. The three fleets sailed to the racing course, positioned a bit deeper in the Piran bay than yesterday.

PURSUING THEIR POTENTIAL FOR TOKYO 2020

28 Jun 2019

In the lead up to the Rio 2016 Olympic Games, the USA had two Women’s Two Person Dinghy teams internationally ranked in the top 11. Considering the 470 Class is not active in the USA, this was a tremendous position of strength that, without a tragic final race, would have resulted in an Olympic medal for USA.

The International 470 Class Association launched the André Cornu Grant back in 2005 in order to honor him (he had passed away in the summer of 2003), the French naval architect who “gave birth” to the 470, the fast, athletic and tactical boat that every one knows.
