Four races left

In the scoring group Platu 25 (the number of participants is 11) the three of the strongest, apparently, decided: “Alice”, Depeche Mode and Metallica are fighting for the cup of the strongest crew. Yesterday, July 17, Vladimir Yermakov brought his “Alisa” yacht first to the finish, followed by Valery Dichenko and Vyacheslav Seleznev on Metallica, the third. So far Depeche Mode is leading on points, and the winner of the past seasons – the Alice crew – only in third position.

But other teams are not far behind. In the same "Alice" the number of points – 8 – equal to the crew of the "Brigade C", while the girls with Pink Floyd and Led Zeppelin – by 12. Therefore, any of the listed yachts can still fight for getting into the top three.

Yevgeny Lyubimov and Tango were the first to finish yesterday in the Konrad, adding one more point to their piggy bank, but, by the end, the team is only on the 6th line of the tournament table. At the top of the charts is Dmitry Last and his Twist team. Behind him – Sergey Shilakin on “Kamerton”, the third – “Impulse”, and on the 4th place the yacht “Ariel” suddenly broke into. By the way, “Impulse”, “Ariel” and Okey have equal number of points – 9 points each, so the question about the third place remains open. A total of 9 teams in the Konrad 25 R group are fighting for victory.

Ahead, as already mentioned, four more races, after which the winners in each class will be determined.
