Racing has officially concluded in half of the fleets at the 2020 Hempel World Cup Series Enoshima. Saturday, August 31 featured Medal Races for the Men's and Women's RS:X, 49er, 49erFX, and Nacra 17 fleets, while the remaining fleets concluded their Qualifying Series.

US Sailing Team Athletes, Andrew Mollerus (Larchmont, N.Y.) and Ian MacDiarmid (Delray Beach, Fla.) represented the United States in the Men's 49er Medal Race. They began the day in ninth place. After battling more extreme conditions on Sagami Bay, they managed to finish fourth in the race, bringing them up in the standings to eighth overall.

Since teaming up, Mollerus and MacDiarmid have shown significant progress along the road to Tokyo 2020. With four top-five finishes this week, they have demonstrated has their ability to perform well in a competitive fleet. Their next major regatta will be the 49er World Championships in late November.

Mollerus is looking forward to starting the fall season on a strong note, "Beyond the results at this event, we're just glad to be finding little takeaways to improve on every day. This is a good result for us, it shows that we're able to hang at the top of the fleet, so we're looking forward to a good fall."

Upon wrapping up the Qualifying Series, the United States has three more athletes that will compete in the final set of Medal Races. Luke Muller (Fort Pierce, Fla.) will be sailing in the Men's Finn Medal Race and Atlantic and Nora Brugman (Winthrop, Mass.) will compete in the Women's 470 Medal Race. Both boats qualified for their respective Medal Races in 10th place after another exciting date of racing in over twenty-knot winds.

The Men's and Women's 470s, Lasers, Laser Radials, and Finns will conclude racing on Sunday, September 1 at 12:10, local time. The Women's 470 race is scheduled for 12:10 and the Finn race is scheduled for 2:50. All Medal Races will be streamed live on World Sailing's YouTube channel.
