RS:X: the windsurfing class will make its last Olympic appearance in Tokyo 2020 | Photo: Shutterstock

Twenty-five male windsurfers and 27 female windsurfers will compete at the Tokyo 2020 Olympic Games.

Sailors from 31 nations will race for gold, silver, and bronze medals at the small island of Enoshima in Sagami Bay, Kanagawa Prefecture, Japan.

The Olympic sailing venue is located 30 miles (50 kilometers) south of Tokyo and is home to the Enoshima Yacht Club and Odakyu Yacht Club.

In the 1964 Tokyo Olympics, Enoshima also welcomed athletes and their boats, precisely 20 years before windsurfing Olympic debut.

This time, the place will witness the end of an era for RS:X as the official Olympic windsurfing class. The equipment has been the favorite sailboarding kit since Beijing 2008.

In Paris 2024, there will be a new class and a new way of riding a windsurfer with the introduction of the iQFoil, a windfoil system.

The qualified RS:X windsurfers for the Tokyo 2020 Olympic Games will compete for the ultimate sports glory from July 20-25, 2021.
