2012 Junior World Championships Training and Racing Clinic

Heading to Takapuna, New Zealand for the 2012 470 Junior World Championships? Then join the 470 Class at the pre-Championship Training and Racing Clinic being run by Nikos Drougas (GRE). Taking place from 24-26 January, the Clinic will offer coaching and race training on the Championship racing area.

Two days after the clinic, the first day of racing at the 470 Junior Worlds will be 28 January 2012 with an 1100 hours start scheduled, with racing through until 3 February.

Over the past few years, the 470 Class pre-Championship Clinics have been held before most of our World and European Championships and have become extremely popular and proven to give significant benefits to teams.
