"Spring Sails of Taganrog": the athletes of the Sailing Academy have three silver and one bronze
On May 5, Taganrog Spring Sails regatta ended in Taganrog. For athletes of the Academy, it was primarily of a training nature – it was important for the coaches to check their players in combat conditions, and the test was a success.
In the Laser Radial class, Christina Freygang became the second among girls, and Matvey Lobanov became the third among boys, and in the Laser 4.7 class, recent debutants Maxim Shaposhnikov and Sophia Dashtoyan won silver in their test groups. We asked them to summarize the regatta.
Andrei Startsev, coach of the Academy in the Laser class: “We were able to accomplish everything that we had planned, this is about 40 hours of work on the water during the collection. The guys do not know how to race especially, there were a lot of mistakes at the start and during the races, we corrected them in the process. The regatta was primarily of a training nature, glad that we fulfilled our tasks 100%. ”
Christina Freygang, the silver medalist of the regatta in the Laser Radial class: “The competitions were held in a variety of wind conditions, the first day was weak, the second and third winds reached 10-12 meters, yesterday (May 4) was average and today (May 5) is very weak, but this did not prevent the organizers from conducting all the planned 12 races. Even in a strong wind, I continued to struggle with athletes who were harder and harder. Could perform much better, but back problems prevented. I plan to recover to the next competition. ”
Maxim Shaposhnikov, the silver medalist of the regatta in the class Laser 4.7: “The regatta turned out to be quite good, Taganrog was pleased with the weather, because of the strong winds in the first half of the regatta physical fitness played a big role. Everything went surprisingly predictable, all athletes took their places according to their level. ”
