Each fly is worth its weight in gold
The fourth day of the match races, August 16, began in full calm, but in the afternoon the wind blew in streaks of water, and then covered the entire water area of the Verkh-Isetsky Pond, where the World Championship in junior match races takes place.
That very minimal wind blew, about 4 knots, ”said Veniamin Gusev, Empire, judge of the All-Russian category,“ which we needed to conduct the race. Now a third of the races of the second round robin has passed. Tomorrow is the last day of the race, and a lot depends on what the wind will be like.
Today, August 17, is the fifth and last race day of the match races, and so far the forecast is calm.
The Australians are still leading: the team of Tom Kraim from the Cruising Yacht Club of Australia, the Russians are still the tenth.
