Worlds and Junior Europeans
420 Worlds - with just 2 days to go until this year's World Championship kicks off, we can't wait to meet the 460 sailors who are joining us from all over the world, as well of course the coaches, parents and support teams.
Racing will be held across Open, Women and U17 fleets - with mixed gender and single gender teams competing.
We are super proud that the 420 Worlds has secured ECO event status and those of you in Vilamoura will see plenty of environmentally friendly initiatives. Please support us.
Allen Brothers, the leading UK manufacturer of performance hardware, is providing prizes to the podium finishers with vouchers from £300 to £100 up for grabs, as well as aerovanes.
If you are looking for an almost new 420, now is the time as NEWBLUE.EU is selling their once used charter boats immediately after the 420 Worlds.
