As of Friday, August 30, the Qualifying Series at the 2020 Hempel World Cup Series Japan has concluded for half of the competitors. Medal Races are scheduled begin on Saturday, August 31 in the Men's and Women's RS:X, 49er, 49erFX, Nacra 17 fleets.

The remaining classes will conclude their Qualifying Series before moving on to Medal Races on Sunday, September 1.

US Sailing Team athletes Andrew Mollerus (Larchmont, N.Y.) and Ian MacDiarmid (Delray Beach, Fla.) will represent the United States in the Men's 49er class. They are currently sitting in ninth place, and with a tight point spread ahead of them, they are eager to move up the leaderboard. "You know, it's a World Cup, so you want to do really well," said MacDiarmid. "Yesterday, we had the best result that we've ever had as a team, so we're super stoked on a whole to be stacked up so well against the fleet.

Mollerus and MacDiarmid battled harsh conditions on Sagami Bay to clinch their spot in the only Men's 49er race of the day. Thanks to gusts over twenty knots that caused several boats to flip, the Race Committee made the decision to abandon the second race and send the athletes back to shore. Shortly after, the 49erFX and Nacra 17 races were also canceled.

Among athletes looking towards Sunday's Medal Races are U.S. Women's 470 athletes, Atlantic and Nora Brugman (Winthrop, Mass.). After finishing their final race of the day in third, they moved up to 10th overall and are currently in position to qualify for the Women's 470 Medal Race.

Luke Muller (Fort Pierce, Fla.) is also currently in a qualifying position for the Finn Medal Race. Standing in eighth overall, he will be looking to close out the Qualifying Series in the top ten to clinch qualification. Muller's teammate and training partner, Caleb Paine (San Diego, Calif.) is currently sitting just outside the top 10, in 12th overall. With nine points separating him from the 10th place spot, he'll be looking to close the gap before the conclusion of tomorrow's races.

Racing is scheduled to resume tomorrow at 12:00, local time. The Medal Races will be streamed live on World Sailing's YouTube channel.
