470 Olympic Sailing.
A great sailing dinghy called 470. Why 470? That’s the overall length of this sailing boat in meters. 4.70 meter.
Designed in 1963 by André Cornu this is a fun fast fibreglass planing sailboat. It is a two crew boat with a mainsail, jib or genoa and a spinnaker and fitted with a trapeze. Even though the theoretical boat speed is only about 5 knots it can much faster as soon as the crew can make it planing.
It is also an olympic class sailboat since 1976.
