470 SAILS SUPPORT PROGRAM 2019 - 2020

05 Oct 2019

The International 470 Class Association announces the new 470 Sails Support program where specific teams will be able to buy brand new sails at reduced prices, thanks also to the participation of our sailmakers.


 

Specifically, the International 470 Class Association will contribute with a EUR 500 voucher per set, which will be sent directly to the sailmaker which will be selected by each team. Furthermore, sailmakers who have joined the program as our partners are offering additional discounts or even free shipping (see below).

The program provides for 10 sets of sails in 2019 and another 10 in 2020. Priority will be given to Junior mixed, Junior, emerging nations, Olympic teams from emerging nations and teams transitioning from the 420 into the 470 class.

Please send your request to solidarity@470.org along with detailed information about your team and your intended competition program in the 470 class. The deadline for applications for the 2019 program is 8th November 2019, 22:00 UTC. The applications for the 2020 program should be submitted by 1st February 2020 at 22:00 UTC.
