EUROSAF and International 420 class launch brand new European circuit

by 420 Class 11 Dec 2018 16:06 GMT

EUROSAF, the continental association for the sport of sailing in Europe, and the International 420 Class Association, one of the world's most popular two-person youth dinghies, have set up the EUROSAF 420 Race Circuit, a circuit of regattas within Europe, to foster and promote two-person dinghy sailing in Europe.

The 2018/2019 circuit will comprise six events across Europe starting with the 2018 Imperia Winter Regatta in Italy and ending at 2019 Kiel Week in Germany.

EUROSAF will award medals to the top placed Boys/Mixed U19, Girls U19 and Open U17 teams across the six events.The best boys' and girls' teams under 19 and the best team under 17 will be eligible for an extra starting place (over the quotas for their nation) at the 2019 420 Junior European Championships in Vilagarcia de Arousa, north-western Spain, 23-30 July 2019, with the entry fee waived.

"This event is a great opportunity for young sailors from all over Europe to meet, exchange, and compete at an international level. By traveling further afield than their home waters they will discover new regattas and new fellow sailors and enhance their experience. By being consistent in their results they will have a European recognition within their reach. In addition, we expect the selected regattas to see an increase in participation, especially from other parts of Europe", commented Josep M. Pla, President of EUROSAF.
