As it was in Split

In the Croatian city of Split, the world championship in the Laser Radial and Laser Standard classes has come to an end. The RUS Youth Sailing Team page provides details:

This time the weather experienced athletes calm. According to forecasts, it was expected that such weather on the Adriatic coast would last for two days, but …

“For all the time I go in for sailing, I have never seen that there were no races on the regatta for two days in a row,” commented Valeria Lomatchenko. – When on the second day it was announced that there would be no wind throughout the regatta, I told everyone: this cannot be! But the race put off everything. "

The organizers had a difficult task, because in order for the world championship to be considered valid, it is necessary to conduct at least 4 races. On the third day, a weak wind persisted, but despite this, one race was held.

“The lack of wind, of course, did not please us, after all, we arrived in Split in order to chase, and not sit on the shore. Specifically, in this regatta, it was this long wait that was difficult, and then several strata for several days in a row, and the result was absolutely unpredictable. But, the coaches Vladimir and Diana Krutskikh helped me maintain my mood, encouraged me, ”Maria Kislukhina shared.

On the fourth and fifth days of the regatta, the girls went to start at 10, or even at 9 in the morning, after one race for an hour the wind was waiting, but even this did not stop them from achieving the result. As a result, after five racing days, only two races took place. And only the final day made it possible to conduct three races in a good wind. In total, five passed in six racing days!

“There is no way to get out into a weak wind, everyone goes at the same speed, and whatever you do, it’s impossible to win back. When the results were posted for two races, I did not watch them. I was informed that I was in third place, and this surprised me very much, because I had the 5th and 10th parishes! So everything was very unstable, black flags, yellow … By the way, I also had one promotion, so I realized that there was no room for error. On the last day, it started well in the second race, but in the third the wind came from the other side. I hung the whole race, worked, did my best to get into the top 10. Unfortunately, the 15th came, Masha came the third – this allowed her to rise to the top 3 too, ”says Valeria Lomatchenko.

Our athletes managed, withstood and showed excellent results. Valeria Lomatchenko and Maria Kislukhina managed to climb the podium, winning the silver and bronze medals of the world championship in the class "Laser Radial" !!! Ekaterina Bereza finished the performance in 47th place. Ekaterina Guseva was 4 positions lower.

This regatta was not easy for young men. The coach of the national team in the Laser class Maxim Semerkhanov noted that for the first time at the world championships, there were not a single representative of Europe in the top three. Among Russian athletes, the best result was shown by Daniil Krutskikh, who took 17th place. In the first races, which were held in low winds, the yachtsman came 42 and 20, but then he still entrenched in the top ten. Among the athletes under 19, Nikita Melnikov entered the twenty strongest yachtsmen, but in the overall classification the young athlete became 57th. Ilya Vyunov took 54th place among athletes under 19 years old, according to the results of the world championship, the young man took 130th place.

This regatta has become a true endurance test for everyone. Once again, we congratulate Valery Lomatchenko and Maria Kislukhina, their trainers and sports schools with a decent result and wish them good luck in their further performances! Hurrah!
