The Tokyo 2020 Olympic Sailing Competition will start from 9th to 16th September in Enoshima in Japan. The event is being hosted here for the first time for sailors for 2019 World Cup Series. Considering the Hempel Sailing World Championship held in Aarhus, Denmark, all competitors will continue their journey to 2020 Tokyo Olympic Sailing Competition.
The sailors will be welcomed by Enoshima in only 2 years time for Olympics games and many sailors will have a chance to be a part of the World Cup. There is no doubt that such events hosted on Olympic waters strongly indicate what one expects from the Olympic Games.
The London 2012 test event which took place in the year 2011 saw 17 medalists trying to achieve the Olympic medal and the Aquece Rio 2015 and 2016 sailing event saw 16 medalists winning an Olympic medal after one year. As far as the Enoshima fleets are concerned, it features several finest racers who are trying to aim to set a benchmark.
The sailors who were crowned the World Champions in Aarhus are taking part and along with them 450 more sailors would take part from 45 nations. There are over 30 Olympic medalists joining the competition. Caterina Banti and Ruggero Tita have been outstanding in this year in Nacra 17 as they won 2 World Cup events in addition to the World Championships.
The scene was all ready in Aarhus for a great Medal Race as the sailors were led through a small margin. There was breeze in the air, but it failed and made the Italians win the world title. The winning teams will start from where they left in Enoshima as they would renew the competition in a bid to showcase their performance in the Olympics waters. It is indeed going to be an eventful competition.
