Takahashi & Koizumi on track for Tokyo 2020

Well done to our RNZYS Performance Programme sailor Leonard Takahashi & his 49er sailing partner RNZYS Member Ibu Koizumi who finished 19th out of 45 at the Medemblik Regatta in Amsterdam.

The team will now head to Kiel Week in Germany in two weeks time, followed by the European Championships in July and the World Championships in August as they aim to qualify to represent Japan at the 2020 Tokyo Olympic Games.

Update from the team below:

“We concluded the Medemblik regatta in 19th place out of 45. We are happy with the results. However we have several aspects of the game to work on and look forward to improving as we prepare for the Europeans and World Championships in July and August.

Thank you for everyone’s support and to JSAF and the national team for their continued support. Watch this space as we head to Kiel in 2 weeks time.”
