420 CLASS INCREASES QUOTAS FOR 2020 420 WORLD CHAMPIONSHIPS
The Executive Committee of the International 420 Class Association has taken the decision to increase the quotas for each 420 National Class Association competing at the 2020 420 World Championships in the Men/Mixed, Women and U17 events.
2020 is the 60th Anniversary of the 420 Class and appropriately the World Championships returns to France, the country in which the boat was designed. The 2020 420, Women and U17 World Championship will be held in Crozon-Morgat from 3-11 July 2020.
Nations will be entitled to enter the following teams per event at the World Championships:
- Men/Mixed - 14 boats for each country and 20 boats for the host country.
- Women - 14 boats for each country and 20 boats for the host country.
- U17 - 12 boats for each country and 20 boats for the host country. An U17 team is defined as a team who shall not have attained their 17th birthday on or before 31 December 2020 (i.e. born after 31 December 2003) for both members of the team.
The total quota for each country is 40 boats and 60 for the host country. A country may request the International 420 Class Association Executive Committee to change their own entry numbers for the Championship, as long as the total country quota is not exceeded.
The 2020 420 World Championships website and online entry will be open in the coming months - and all National Class Associations will be notified.
Please note that the quota increase applies for the 2020 420 World Championships only, and will be reviewed for future World Championships thereafter.
Take a read of the bid document and find out more about the fantastic venue of Centre Nautique de Crozon Morgat, on the north-west point of France, just south of Brest. Host to many world-class competitions, the racing here is superb.
Crozon Morgat will give teams and supporters an excellent welcome and this small port town has all facilities in walking or cycling distance. Guaranteed this will make for a lively post-race atmosphere every evening as competitors enjoy the myriad of restaurants around the harbour.
Racing will take place a short 10 minute sail out of the harbour, with weather conditions during July likely to be reliable, with plenty of race track challenges under a blue sky.
