Five weeks, 90 races and 55 participants
The Sailing Academy of the St. Petersburg Yacht Club held one of the largest virtual racing series in the country – the Virtual Regatta Super Series.
According to https://www.sailing-academy.ru, last week the virtual series Virtual Regatta Super Series ended. Races started on May 19, the finals were on June 16 and 18. Over the course of four stages, the racers figured out which of them deserves to participate in the super final and compete for prizes. Each stage took place in two days and consisted of 10 races. All final arrivals went into the overall standings – the athlete who scored the least points in four stages and the super final was recognized as the winner. In the super final, points scored doubled.
In the age category under 14 years old, riders were divided into two groups of 19 people. In the category of under 18 years old 17 athletes entered. The series of regattas was attended by children from St. Petersburg, Dolgoprudny, Miass, Votkinsk, Kaliningrad, Mozhaisk, Zapolyarny, Konakovo, Sevastopol, Vladivostok, Moscow and Voronezh.
In the youngest age group, the favorites of all the virtual regattas of the Academy of Sailing, Nikita Chernykh and Andrey Shunenkov, traditionally fought for victory. The format of the Super Series was better suited to the winner of Electronic Sails and Electronic Armada – Nikita Chernykh. He won in all stages and won gold. Andrey lost 25 points to his competitor and became the second. For the third place, a stubborn struggle unfolded between Anastasia Babanova and Vladimir Lyubomirov, in which Anastasia was a little more successful.
In the older group there were no equal to Kirill Shunenkov. The athlete steadily went through all four stages and won by a good margin. Following him were Taisiya Kuzmina and Yegor Pakhmutov.
