29 Jul 2018

A brand new combined event, the 420/470 Eastern Europe Championship, is taking place in Lithuania from 12-16 September.

This news belongs to
2018 Eastern Europe Championship

The Championship is open to all teams, with the Eastern European nations being a specific target. Recognizing that sometimes travel to venues can be prohibitive, the 420/470 Classes have taken the joint decision to take a dedicated Championship to the region. Both Classes are particularly looking forward to welcoming entries from: Belarus, Bulgaria, Czech Republic, Estonia, Hungary, Kosovo, Latvia, Lithuania, Moldova, Montenegro, Poland, F.Y.R.O.M, Romania, Russia, Serbia, Slovakia and Ukraine

The Championship is being organized by the Lietuvos 470 asociacija (Lithuanian 470 Class Association) in partnership with the International 420 and 470 Class Associations, with 10 races scheduled over 4 days. Take a read of the Notice of Race.

Lithuania is a perfect host venue due to its location, and is expected to attract a strong line-up of teams. The Championship format will feature separate racing for the 420 and 470 fleets over four days of racing and the option to use three course areas. Racing will be open, with no separate divisions for men and women, and titles awarded to the 470 Class Eastern European Champion and 420 Class Eastern European Champion.

Entries should be in by 1 September 2018 with a fee of EUR60 per boat and EUR10 for coaches/support team members. Go to 2018easterneuropeans.470.org
