How to Watch the 470 World Championship Online and on TV

The 470 World Championship sailing has no confirmed television distributor. As a result, the event will not be broadcast on television.

The official World Sailing YouTube channel, World Sailing TV, will live stream the 470 World Championship qualifying matches and final series. Additionally, individual competitors are given the right to record and show their situation throughout the competition.

Prize Money

While the officials have confirmed that the top 10 leading teams in the leaderboard will be given prize money in the championship, the individual prize money allocation chart has yet to be released. Furthermore, the first crews on the final official ranking list will be dubbed “470 Class Mixed World Champions.” The top three teams will be given gold, silver, and bronze medals as in previous years.
