2012 470 World Championship

Spain Barcelona International Sailing Centre, Spain

The new Barcelona International Sailing Centre is an impressive venue, fully equipped to host major Championships and events.

Prior to the 470 World Championship, the Centre Municipal de Vela at the Olympic Marina will be available for training.

Charter Boats

Following the success of the Charter Boat Programme at the Perth 2011 ISAF Sailing World Championships, the International 470 Class will again be providing eight brand new 470s for charter at the 2012 470 World Championships. The 2012 470 Worlds are the final qualification event for the 2012 Olympic Games, with 5 places available for the 470 women event and 7 places available for the 470 men.

The 2012 Charter Boat Programme is focusing on support to teams representing nations which are not yet qualified to the 2012 Olympic Games.

The International 470 Class has partnered with 470 builder BlueBlue, who are based in Poland, to provide eight charter boats for the Championship at a considerably subsidised charter fee of EUR300 per boat per team.
