2013 Angolan 470 National Championship

The Angolan Federation of Nautical Sports (FADEN) will be hosting the Dinghy Sailing National Championship 2013, co-organized by the Clube Naval de Luanda (CNL) and sponsored by NetOne, on 29, 30 and 31 March 2013 in Luanda.

The event is open to the Optimist, Laser Standard, Laser Radial, 420 and 470. A 12 race series is scheduled over three days of racing, with prizes awarded to the top three finishers in each class.

The 470 has seen some very active development in Angola over recent years, with a joint 420/470 Clinic held in October 2010. Angola then competed at the All Africa Games in Mozambique in 2011. Further training clinics have taken place, and in 2012, Angola purchased twenty brand new 420 dinghies, to support the implementation of their pathway from Optimist sailing through to Olympic Sailing.
