Electronic Sails 2020: 6 Years Old, 68 Years Old!
326 racers are fighting for the victory in the Russian Cup in Virtual Regatta "Electronic Sails 2020". On Tuesday, at the largest virtual regatta in the country, qualification in two test groups was completed.
In the Russian Virtual Regatta Cup, more than 300 riders from 60 regions of Russia are divided into three age groups. On April 21, guys in the categories under 14 and 18 years old entered the battle, and tomorrow, April 22, qualification will be held for athletes over 18 years old. In total, the regatta will last until Friday, when the final series in each group will take place. Competitions are held on Star class yachts.
"Electronic Sails 2020" – the most massive virtual sailing regatta in Russia. Riders from all over the country registered for the tournament: from Kaliningrad to Vladivostok, from Zapolyarny to Sochi. The oldest participant is 68 years old, and the youngest is six. In conditions of self-isolation, yachtsmen of all ages were forced to go online and mastered the most popular racing simulator Virtual Regatta.
Qualification races were practically non-stop from 15.00 to 22.00 Moscow time. During this time, 10 groups of 11-12 athletes each managed to drive away. The next stage was seven of the best yachtsmen from each group. The qualification series consisted of five races with one throw of the worst result.
In the age category under 14 years old, Yegor Serdyuk from Sochi showed himself best of all. Yegor scored four points with four first arrivals. Only in one of the races did he come second, but this result of his went to waste. Not one rider in the qualification has not submitted such a height. Closest to him was his teammate from Sochi secondary school No. 13 Maxim Kuteiko. Among the athletes of the Academy of Sailing, Andrei Shunenkov and OptiOrange bronze medalist Nikita Chernykh were the best in their performance. They each had six points.
In the age category up to 18 years, there was a more intense struggle – in almost every group it was difficult to single out an unequivocal favorite. Perhaps, the athlete from Sevastopol Vasily Bogdanov stood out from the general background. The Sevastopol racer obeyed a phenomenal result – five wins in a row. For the entire duration of the electronic regattas by the Academy of Sailing, no athlete has won all the races of the racing series. In his group, Vasily left no chance for either the silver medalist of the Russian Championship in the Optimist class Marina Babkina, or the winner of the World Junior Championship in RS: X class Yana Reznikova. All other holders of trips to the semifinals performed quite smoothly.
