Not even Covid19 could stop our Solidarity Programme this year. 2020 was the third and successful consecutive edition of this programme, where selected sailors from European countries with low participation on our main events could enjoy of the 2020 Laser 4.7 Youth European Championships in Vilamoura, Portugal.


EurILCA’s Solidarity Programme was released for the first time in 2018 during the Laser 4.7 Youth Europeans in Patras, Greece, and then repeated in 2019 for the Laser 4.7 Youth Euros in Hyeres, France.

This programme is intended to help youth sailors from European countries with low participation to join our Laser 4.7 Youth European championships.
