Bulgaria did issue a stamp of 1Lev in 2007 to celebrate the “Junior 470 World Championship” yacht races at Bourgas, Bulgaria which took place from 21 till 29 July 2007.

Around 470 participants took part in this race.

http://www.470.org/The-470-Class-dinghy gives:

The 470 boat is an Olympic class dinghy recognised by ISAF and sailed by both male and female teams.
The type was designed in 1963 by the Frenchman André Cornu, as a modern fibreglass planning dinghy.
In 1969 the class was given international status and it has been an Olympic class since featuring at the Montreal Olympics in 1976.
1988 The first Olympic women’s sailing event was sailed in the 470.

The yachts are equipped with a spinnaker and trapeze which demands real teamwork. To be competitive, everything should be mastered to perfection and the 470 is often quoted as the hardest Olympic design to get grips with. Tactically the boat is demanding as speed differences between competitors are small and fleets are usually big.

Particulars:
Weight 120 kg. Length 4.7m, length of waterline 4.4m.
Total sail area 12.7m.
