About the 2010 470 Junior World Championships:
The 2010 470 Junior World Championships is a “pay and play” event with brand new supplied 470s.
The concept of supplied equipment is a first time experience for many of the teams, and one which the 470 Class is keen to promote. With supplied equipment, all teams compete on an equal footing with only minor adjustments allowed to settings as the boats are rotated between the two fleets.
