Enoshima Olympic Week - Light wind for day 1

After the first day of racing at Enoshima Olympic Week, Japan, all classes completed three races in a light NE breeze from Kamakura Budda.

Enoshima is the venue for the 2020 Tokyo O;ympics sailing events, and a number of countries have sent competitors for an early visit, although the conditions would most likely be different in August.

The 17 strong British presence is a mix and match selection . . . James Peters (49er) is sailing a Radial, Dylan Fletcher (49er) and Stuart Bithell (470) are sailing in the 49er, and Fynn Sterritt (49er) in the Laser.

Matt Wearn of Australia won two of the Laser races, with Lorenzo Chiavarini of Britain taking the other.

Radial Gold medal winner Marit Bouwmeester of Holland won the two Radial races she finished in. Alison Young finished the day in fifth (5,3,7).

Dylan Fletcher and Stuart Bithell won the first two 49er races, before Ryo Takahashi and Ibuki Koizumi of Japan took race 3.

In the women's 470 Sophe Weguelin and Eilidh Mcintyre also won their first two races. Wang Xiaoli and Lizhu Huang of Japan winning race 3.
