ASAF SAILING CUP ENOSHIMA OLYMPIC WEEK 2023 started yesterday in Tokyo 2021 Olympic waters!
The Olympic classes section of Kiel Week were blessed with the best wind conditions of the regatta so far, winds of up to 18 knots and choppy seas produced spectacular Medal Races, a fitting finale after four days of very light winds on Wednesday (21 June). Germany won the Kiel Olympic class titles in the 470 Mixed Dinghy.
Following a first edition that was published for the Class’s 50th anniversary and rapidly sold out, here is the sequel: ‘The 470 Great Book 2013-2022’.
As Kiel Week moved through the final phase on Tuesday (20 June) and another day of light to moderate, shifty challenging breezes, it was even more difficult to stay consistent over a long day of intense competition as the race management teams sought to deliver a full programme of races. Tightly fought 470 classe promises exciting medal races on Wednesday (21 June).
World Sailing has approved and published the updated 470 Class Rules and Building Specification, effective from 15 June 2023, taking into account the amendments proposed by the 2023 GAM.
