2022 470 ANGOLAN NATIONAL CHAMPIONSHIP WAS CONCLUDED WITH GREAT SUCCESS

30 Jun 2022

From 18th to 26th June FADEN (ANG MNA) co-organized with Clube Naval de Luanda the 470 Angolan National Championship.


On the 470 first mixed season, after 2020 and 2021 non racing COVID period, 6 teams competed at Angolan top level to decide both the National Champion title as well as the top ranking position - entitled to assume the representation of the sport at international official events.

With 11 of the planned 12 races completed on 4 days, the competitive experience from the former Olympic team (Montinho/Afonso - now splitted on two mixed teams) showed to be crucial, and the podium (as illustrated on the attached picture) was:

- 1st - Matias Montinho (M) / Manuela Paulo (F), Clube Náutico da Ilha de Luanda(13 points)
- 2nd - Domingas Coelho (F) / Paixão Afonso (M), Clube Náutico da Ilha de Luanda (23 points)
- 3rd - António Manasseis (M) / Madalena Makiesse (F), Clube Naval de Luanda (32 points)

The Angolan 2021/22 470 Champions also scored as #1 470 of the season ranking, the sum of the 4 events possible to organize this season on the Post-COVID reality (usually 8-10 qualifying events).
