We are pleased to announce our support for the 420 World Championships which is taking place this summer in Vilamoura, Portugal.

Allen will be recognizing the achievements of the podium finishers in each of the Open, Ladies, U17 Open and U17 Women World Championships, with a £300 voucher awarded to the gold medal winning team, £200 to silver and £100 to bronze to purchase boat hardware from As well as the voucher prize, the podium teams will also receive an Allen aerovane.

A pop-up shop will be on site throughout the 2019 420 Worlds, run by local stockists and event organisers, Vilamoura Sailing, who will have plenty of Allen hardware in stock for the Championship.

Liz Adams, managing director of Allen Brothers, commented, “We are excited to support the 420 Worlds this year, especially when it is being held in such a great sailing venue. Seeing such a large number of boats entered into the event is really positive and shows that competitive youth sailing is still going strong and we are pleased to be able to support that.”

The 2019 420 World Championships is taking place in Vilamoura from 3-11 July 2019. All information on the Championship website:
