Gamagori Japan Sailing Venue

The World Cup Series that recently concluded in Japan was one of the Olympic events out of eight ones planned for Gamagori. The Men’s Skiff or the 49er was sent out on the day when there was no wind. However the conditions were not enough in a competitive race to be held. The scores hence remained the same after on day two as from the first day. This series in Japan suffered due to fickle winds. Gamagori is a coastal city that has about 80,000 people as its population. It has been suffering bad weather for quite some time.

 

Local sailors attribute the fickle wind conditions to the reason being between seasons. They state that this time of year is usually warm, but this year the current conditions have been different. Many local Japanese sailors were optimistic to sail in this venue and were hopeful to showcase some good achievements during the event.

Many were happy that outsiders were coming in to compete in this international event and getting to experience the local water conditions here. As the Tokyo 2020 Olympic Games preparations are underway, this event will certainly give many a chance to acclimatize themselves to the waters by the coastlines of Japan. For the Japanese sailors it is also important that they get practice to compete with international teams over the three years that will lead to the next Olympic Games. There is a new sailing facility that has been built that is state of the art and where an international tournament called Tasar World Championships was held from 30th July to 6th August 2017.

Gamagori is being promoted as a sailing venue in Japan through Enoshima is the chosen venue for the 2020 Olympic Games. However the former has been chosen for the venue for the sailing competitions that would be part of the Asian Games which would be held in 2026. These games are quadrennial events which are held among Asian athletes and competitions here are valued as highly as the Olympics.
