GAC Pindar has offered shipping services to Enoshima, Japan for the 2019 470 World Championship. 

This news belongs to
2019 470 World Championship

Scheduled from 2-9 August 2019, the timing of the 470 Worlds will allow teams who are competing on the international circuit to subsequently compete at the 2019 Olympic Test Event (17-22 August 2019 - with pre-competition activities 15-16 August) and the Enoshima World Cup (25 August - 1 September 2019).

GAC Pindar has proposed options for shipping to Enoshima, enabling teams competing at the 2019 470 Europeans, 6-14 May 2019 in Sanremo, Italy to ship from Genoa to Enoshima immediately after the 470 Europeans and then return to Genoa from Enoshima after the 470 Worlds. Teams not competing at the 470 Europeans may also use the shipping options from Genoa. Rates are competitive, with an indicative price for the return trip of EUR9,000 per 40ft container from Sanremo Yacht Club to Enoshima Olympic Harbour. This indicative price is for boats with an ATA Carnet, and additional costs will apply for boats without an ATA Carnet. Teams can book a single boat slot in a container, as GAC Pindar will co-ordinate the filling of a complete container.

The full GAC Pindar shipping rates will be circulated to all team/coaches who have competed/registered at 470 Championships in 2018. If you would like a copy of the rates, please email: office@470.org
