The last day at Enoshima Olympic Week was not very eventful at all. The Mistral start was postponed ashore as the light north breeze was less than 5 knots.
The 470 Class and Europe went out, but the start was postponed until 10:50 hours. There was just enough wind to start, and they got away after one General recall. However, 25 minutes after the start, the Race Committee decided to abandoned the race because no boats were moving due to a lack of wind.
However despite the lack of racing on the final day Enoshima Olympic Week this year was a great success with 5 different countries taking part. For overseas competitors, Enoshima Yacht Club provided charter boats with free of charge, and we would love to have more entries next year. The 470 Class was really excited to have Jenny Armstrong and Belinda Stowell (AUS) Olympic Champions at Sydney 2000 taking part. Also prior to the regatta, Victor Kovalenko gave 3 days coaching clinic for the Japanese sailors. It was an enjoyable week, and we look forward to next year.
