Silence is observed as stadium racers honor a fallen competitor

"November 6th (Sun), Tatsuya Nakata (29 years old from Fukuoka, who ran in the 10th race of Kagoshima boat race as number 1, on the 10th race on the boat race Kagoshima, has died in an accident during the race"

On November 6, 2022 (Sunday), Tatsuya Nakata (A2 class, 29 years old from Fukuoka Prefecture), who entered the 10th race of the first day of the boat race Miyajima as the first boat, completed a 3-lap backstretch sailing. While running collided with another boat and fell into the water, and then came into contact with the following boat.
He was immediately transported by ambulance to JA Hiroshima General Hospital and treated in the intensive care unit, but he was confirmed dead on the same day. The cause of death is currently under investigation.
This is the 33rd fatal accident of a racer during the race since January 12, 2020, when Susumu Kobayashi (born in Tokyo) registered number 4026 of the Tamagawa Boat Race.
We would like to express our sincere condolences and sincerely pray for the repose of the soul.

In memory of the late Tatsuya Nakata, a flower offering stand will be set up near the main entrance of Boat Race Fukuoka as shown below. [Period] From November 13th (Sunday) to 18th (Friday), 2022 [Time] From opening to around 16:30
