ANOTHER DAY OF LIGHT WINDS BUT WITH A LOT OF TEAMS' PRESSURE IN TOKYO 2020 OLYMPIC WATERS15 Sep 2018
Enoshima and Sagami Bay received extensive rainfall overnight but as a breeze began to develop, there was nothing that could dampen the competitors' spirits, with five Medal Races on the cards and a continuation of fleet racing elsewhere.
Fleet racing continued in the Men's 470 and Women's 470.
Afrodite Kyranakou and Anneloes van Veen (NED), Ai Kondo Yoshida and Miho Yoshioka (JPN) and Benedetta di Salle and Alessandra Dubbini (ITA) fought hard for position in three Women's 470 races. The Dutch team will go into the Medal Race on 29 points. The Japanese are second on 33 and the Italians are on 34.
The Japanese Men's 470 teams maintained consistency again in the 32-boat fleet. Keiju Okada and Jumpei Hokazono (JPN) lead on 32 points, eight clear of Mat Belcher and Will Ryan (AUS) who have been nestled amongst the Japanese all week. Daichi Takayama and Kimihiko Imamura (JPN) and Kazuto Doi and Naoya Kimura (JPN) are third and fourth on 43 and 51 points respectively.
The final day of racing will commence at 12:00 local time
