The 2020 Hempel World Cup Series Enoshima came to a quiet close on Sunday, September 1. Thanks to light winds, only two of the five Medal Races scheduled for the last day of sailing were completed.

The Men's and Women's 470 classes enjoyed Medal Races while the Finn, Laser, and Laser Radial podiums were decided based on the cumulative standings of the first ten races.

US Sailing Team athlete Luke Muller (Fort Pierce, Fla.) was set to compete in the Finn Medal Race. Thanks to light winds at speeds too low for racing, the Finn, Laser, and Laser Radial Medal Races were canceled. In those three classes, the standings from the Qualifying Series dictated the final results. Muller finished the regatta in 10th place overall.

U.S. sailors Atlantic and Nora Brugman (Winthrop, Mass.) were able to compete in one of the two Medal Races that took place today. The pair finished fifth in the Women's 470 Medal Race to land in 10th overall.

They are pleased to wrap the event on a high note. "We are pretty happy to finish fifth. It was exciting to get some practice doing some Medal Racing and it's nice to end our time in Japan on a good note," said Atlantic, "The excitement of the Medal Race is always super motivating. Our next major regatta will be [2020 Hempel World Cup Series] Miami, so we're already excited to go work really hard these next couple months to keep improving as much as possible."

The Brugmans are among several US Sailing Team athletes that have been in Japan since the Laser, Laser Radial, and 470 World Championships that took place in mid-July and early August. The conclusion of this event will mark the end of the long training and competition block in Japan. Many of the sailors will be moving on to prepare for the upcoming World Championships and Oakcliff Triple Crown Series.

The next class World Championship will begin in late November for 49er, 49erFX, and Nacra 17 sailors. Racing at the Oakcliff Triple Crown Series will begin promptly on September 14th.
