31 participants competed in this regatta held on Sunday 11 November at Enoshima East Beach, the sailing venue of the 2020 Tokyo Olympic Games, racing in 3 divisions - U9, U13 and U19.  The youngest sailor was 6 years old, in the first grade of elementary school.  In addition the Tandem class was held.

It was a light wind in the first half of the day but it changed to a strong wind from the latter half of the day becoming a favourable day for sailing. Seven (7) races were completed and the temperature was warm throughout the day.  Many parents and visitors viewed the race from the spectator vessel.

To end the day the Tandem race was sailed before the prize giving was held at the Club house.  The presenter was Ms. Haruka Komiya, the chair of the race committee.
