This morning, the wind in the Bay of Palma reached 25 knots and the masts of the club raised the “carrots” . After two hours of waiting it was decided in classes 49er and 49erFX races not held due to the strong rolling waves on the shore.
However, for boards this obstacle was not, and the distance released the men in the class RS:X. Short start line, a quick course – and soon a well-known result: Vladislav Burmistenko and Alexander Askerov finished 8th and 9th. In the final minutes of 5 th and 6 th places respectively. Which, of course, success.
At this point, its the starting line caught up “semidesyati”. High waves hampered the monitoring of the progress of the race, but blue Spinnaker was clear that the team of Paul Sozykin and Denis Gribanov leaders. After the race was over, we came closer, I learned that the guys finished third.
“Had a great race today, almost all managed to achieve already at the Bank told Denis Gribanov. – From the start chose the left side – and I was right! On the upper Marche was the second and held this position almost to the finish line. Only at the very end of the impulse lost”.
