Team Selection - 2016


The Irish 420 Class Association is pleased to announce the selection criteria for teams to attend the Open & Ladies World Championships 2016 taking place in Imperia, Italy and the Junior Europeans 2016 taking place at Lake Balaton, Hungary. 


The main focus of the Association will be to organise and provide team support for the Worlds Event in Italy. Further information will be made available in due course regarding outline costs, accommodation, boat transport options etc.

The Association will also provide assistance in terms of arrangements, logistical support, boat transport options etc. for teams who are planning to attend any of the overseas pre-qualifying events.

Please note that the Irish 420 Association will not be organising the trip to the Junior Europeans in Hungary.  This responsibility will primarily be for the parents of sailors who have qualified and who are planning to attend.

A number of boats have expressed interest in travelling to the Grand Prix de l'Armistice, Maubuisson, France during the October mid-term.
