The Hempel World Cup Series Enoshima is off to a slow start thanks to a long postponement waiting for wind on day one. Sailors were postponed until the early afternoon when they were met with light and lumpy conditions.

Despite holding the athletes on shore for a couple of hours, the Race Committee managed to fire off at least one race in each class before sunset.

U.S. 49erFX athletes Stephanie Roble (East Troy, Wisc.) and Maggie Shea (Wilmette, Ill.) are currently the highest-ranking Americans. The pair sailed a consistent two races to secure their spot in the top ten. In addition to the light southwesterly paired with the choppy sea state, the athletes had the challenge of dodging another fleet. "Today was a bit of a tricky day. The 49er guys were coming downwind as we were coming upwind off the start," said Roble. "Our races ended up being about getting clear air and getting out to the edge to get better pressure than the boats in the middle."

U.S. Women's 470 sailors Carmen and Emma Cowles (Larchmont, N.Y.) had the opposite experience on their racecourse. The pair struggled early in the race but managed to climb back to 12th place in their only race of the day. "We worked hard today and had a lot of learning opportunities," said Carmen. "Our first leg was a little rough, but we were able to keep passing boats throughout the race to end up 12th, so we're happy with that."

Other standout performances from the U.S. include those of the American Laser and Laser Radial athletes. Though the scores of Radial athlete, Erika Reineke (Fort Lauderdale, Fla.), and Laser athletes, Charlie Buckingham (Newport Beach, Calif.), and Chris Barnard (Newport Beach, Calif.), were inconsistent, they managed to finish one of today's two races in fourth, fourth, and seventh, respectively.
