470 World Championship Gold Medals to Australia in Men and Great Britain in Women

In a race battle to the end, stepping away victorious from the medal race with 2019 470 World Championship Gold medals are Mathew Belcher/Will Ryan (AUS) and Hannah Mills/Eilidh McIntyre (GBR).

Eleven races over the five preceding days of intensely physical and mentally demanding racing today culminated in today’s double-points medal race. The air was thick with expectation as teams prepared their boats under the eyes of hordes of Japanese media gathered around the medal race quarantine zone at Enoshima Yacht Harbour, the venue for the Tokyo 2020 Olympic Sailing Competition.

In the 470 Men, the gold and silver medal contenders were clear cut, as series leaders Jordi Xammar/Nicolas Rodriguez (ESP) and second-placed Mathew Belcher/Will Ryan (AUS) were guaranteed medals, with only the colour to be decided. Behind, the three teams in the mix to make their assault on bronze were Panagiotis Mantis/Pavlos Kagialis (GRE), Sweden’s Anton Dahlberg/Fredrik Bergstrom and 2018 World Champions Kevin Peponnet/Jeremie Mion (FRA).

Virtually the same scenario in the 470 Women, with Hannah Mills/Eilidh McIntyre (GBR) one point ahead of Japan’s defending World Champions Ai Kondo Yoshida/Miho Yoshioka, but the medal permutations were not as clear cut as the men. Whilst the stage seemed set for a gold/silver medal battle between the British and Japanese, there was an outside chance of France’s Camille Lecointre/Aloïse Retornaz stepping up to gold if the leading two teams finished at the back of the pack. Behind the French, Italy’s Elena Berta/Bianca Caruso and Spain’s Silvia Mas/Patricia Cantero also had a points window to seize bronze.

With the medals decided, the prize giving and closing ceremony took place outside the Yacht House, with the proximity of the 1964 Olympic torch serving as a close reminder of what awaits next year. After presentations, the medallists let loose with euphoria, popping the corks on magnums of champagne and fire-hosing it across themselves and the watching crowd in true winners’ style.

With less than a year to go until Tokyo 2020, the success of the 2019 470 Worlds was a small preview of the outstanding environment provided for 470 Class racing on Enoshima Bay and the profile that 470 racing will bring to the 2020 Olympic Sailing Competition.

470 MEN
The 470 Men got off first for their short, sharp twenty-five minute windward/ leeward race, but the gold medal hunt was over before it had begun.

Medal Race Line-Up and Tokyo 2020 Nation Qualification Decided

Race day 5 on Thursday 8 August was the day of reckoning at the 2019 470 World Championship in Enoshima, as the top-10 medal race line-up was decided in the 470 Men and Women and Tokyo 2020 Olympic qualification spots earned.

With three races to decide the four-nation qualification places on offer in the 470 Men and six in the 470 Women the fight was fierce and points close. Racing got underway on schedule at 12:00 hours with the wind between 11-13 knots and big, long waves. Enoshima Bay provided a spectacular stage of breeze and ocean racing that so suits the 470 Class.

The medal race line-up is confirmed and teams will be led out onto the race track by the series leaders, Jordi Xammar/Nicolas Rodriguez (ESP) in the men and Hannah Mills/Eilidh McIntyre (GBR) in the women. With just 1 point between the first and second-placed teams in men and women, the hunt for gold and silver is set to be a two-way battle, but the bronze medal doors are still open.

The 20-25 minute windward/leeward medal race will unfold on Enoshima course, just off Enoshima Yacht Harbour, with men up first for a 12:00 hours warning signal, and women at 13:00 hours.

470 MEN
On the track first for today’s three-race challenge were the men’s gold fleet, with the front players racing in their own game. Behind the series leaders many teams were locked in their final attack to claim Tokyo 2020 nation qualification.

YAMAHA 470 Class World Championships 2019 – Day 3

All change on race day 3, Tuesday 6 August 2019, at the 2019 470 World Championships and Olympic Qualification in Enoshima, Tokyo as the breeze kicked in and the waves picked up for teams to face off in three back to back races in challenging conditions.

A change in leader board standings for the 182 competing athletes from 29 nations reflected the change in weather conditions, as new faces made their assault on the race track.

When the time came, Jordi Xammar / Nicolas Rodriguez (ESP) put their foot on the pedal, with some impressive downwind speed in the men’s fleet, winning every race and shifting up to take the overall lead. Second to multiple world champions Mathew Belcher / Will Ryan (AUS), with Giacomo Ferrari / Giulio Calabrò (ITA) in third. The Men’s Qualification Series wrapped up today and the heavy hitters now advance to face off in gold fleet racing, with the rest of the pack in silver. Every single point counts even more, as the gold fleet now features the final line-up of nine nations fighting for one, of only four, nation qualification places for Tokyo 2020 on offer here at the 470 Worlds.

Control at the front of the 470 Women fleet changed race by race with nine different teams stepping up to a top-three finish across the three races. Consistency pays and Japan’s defending world champions took their first race win of the series to edge them into the lead on a one-point advantage over Poland’s Agnieszka Skrzypulec / Jolanta Ogar. Rio 2016 Olympic Champion Hannah Mills (GBR) and crew Eilidh McIntyre scored 1, 9, 9 to sit just 4 points off pole position.

Racing continues on Wednesday 7 August 2019 at 12:00 hours local time with three races scheduled for the Men and Women fleets.

YAMAHA 470 Class World Championships 2019 – Day 2

Two races completed for the 470 Men and 470 Women fleets at the 2019 470 World Championships and Tokyo 2020 Olympic Qualification in Enoshima, Japan on Monday 5 August.

The light weather conditions and wave swell on the race track made sure there was no margin for errors as the 182 athletes from 29 nations faced off on the Sagami racecourse in Enoshima Bay.

Precision teamwork from Sweden’s Anton Dahlberg / Fredrik Bergström in the 52 boat men’s fleet, rewarded the pair with scores of 3, 2 to lead overall. Second to Hungary’s Balazs Gyapjas / Zsombor Gyapjas, whose performance in race 2 marked only their second ever career win at World Championship level. Their day’s racing places them in second overall and in a strong position as the brothers attempt to claim one of the four Tokyo 2020 nation qualification places. Pleasing the home fans, Japan’s Keiju Okada / Jumpei Hokazono are in third from scores of 1, 2, on an 8 point tiebreak with the Hungarians. The teams in 4th and 5th also count 8 point scores, but the scoring gives the advantage to the teams holding the race wins.

Spain’s Silvia Mas / Patricia Cantero top the women’s fleet from a consistent scorecard of 3, 3. The defending 470 Women’s World Champions, Ai Kondo Yoshida / Miho Yoshioka, were satisfied with scores of 10, 2 to end the day second overall on the leader board, on tiebreak advantage over Linda Fahrni / Maja Siegenthaler of Switzerland. The Swiss, who are attempting to secure their second Olympic appearance, launched their assault to seal their names on one of the six women’s nation qualification places with finishes of 6, 6.

Racing resumes on Tuesday, 6 August at 12:00 hours local time with 3 races scheduled for the Men and Women fleets.
