On Saturday, October 12th, the final official race of the sailing calendar of the 2019 season was held – Chichester Flight. The page “Sailing in the Moscow Region” on Facebook shared the details:
It was already the 10th anniversary Chichester flight, and 67 participants were announced for it. The weather was autumn (air + 6 + 8, water +12, wind 5-7 m / s, in gusts up to 12 m / s, drizzling rain) and 52 people went to the start. Not everyone reached the finish line – there were torn sails, guys, stranded, but the knowledge that you “can” warmed your soul and helped in the struggle for victory!
Due to the great desire of yachtsmen to participate in the race, the participating cruising yachts were supplemented with “Soling”, “Star”, catamaran, trimaran, “Em-Ka”, “Rocket 670”, SB20 (who participated in it).
All yachts that covered the distance (a large loop between the Dmitrovsky bridge and the Pirogov dam) met the control time.
This year, the race was won by classic cruising yachts of the “Folkbot” class, and the winner was Danila Nesterov (Patriot) on his Volkbot and for the first time alone on the steering wheel, he usually chases in a team.
Many thanks to Vneshtradedservice and the Yacht Russia magazine, who supported the race, to the organizers: I / c KB KhimMash named after A.Yu. Isaev and personally to Denis Baturin.
