16 Dec 2017

TO: NATIONAL CLASS ASSOCIATIONS, SAILORS AND COACHES

You will have read in the sailing media that on 13 December 2017 World Sailing announced the “Event and Equipment Selection Process” for the Paris 2024 Olympic Sailing Competition.

This review process has accelerated the timeframe and adjusted the process by which the events and equipment will be debated and decided by World Sailing. You can read the World Sailing announcement and the supporting document which sets out the 2024 Events and Equipment Review Procedure and timeframe in the form of FAQs, at:

The selection of events and equipment is always a challenging time for all. The International 470 Class Association is focused on ensuring that in this first stage of World Sailing deciding the “events” for the 2024 Olympic Sailing Competition that both a two-person dinghy men and a two-person dinghy women event are retained.

The next step, which will be decided by World Sailing in November 2018, will be to secure the 470 Class as the selected "equipment".

The International 470 Class Association will keep you informed of developments, and if you have any questions about the review process please email office@470.org
