Tokyo2020: A look ashore at Enoshima - 2020 Olympic venue

by International 470 Association 5 Aug 2019 17:20 PDT 6 August 2019

A look ashore at Enoshima, the venue for the 2020 Olympic Sailing Regatta, which was also the venue for the 1964 Olympics.

The regatta will be sailed in the shadow of Mt Fuji and well away from the main Olympic events in Tokyo. The regatta is based on an island joined by a causeway to the mainland. It is currently the venue for the Yamaha 470 World Championships, being held 12 months out from the 2020 Olympic Sailing Regatta.
