Detailed results –
“The regatta is run in different winds, with rivals always wore very tight – there were no breaks even if you went first, there’s always the wind, which can overtake – told the correspondent Daniel RUS Youth Sailing Team. – Therefore, each race was for me, as the last, so it was necessary to work to the maximum, until the end! When we go out all together, it’s hard mentally, so it is very easy for one or two races to throw. I had no problem to go first – my goal was to walk steadily. In the end, all the parishes in the top five – and it’s helped me strongly enough to break away from their closest rivals. Yes, due to the fact that the world Cup is held in Australia, spoke many local athletes. All these guys are strong, all my life go in a strong wind. By the way, on the wind it was hard, because the wave they know better and in some FordeWind they cut off about 100 metres! But still, the main hurt I was doing myself at the first traverse began, he tried to get into the first group – the first five or ten people because there race is much easier and, of course, hoping for good luck!”
“I also want to thank my coach Vladimir Krutskikh. It was set up before each race, said his feelings on the tactics as he sees this picture. I listened to his words. Also, thank your team “Krestovsky island”. All did a great job, without them would be nothing like that!” – said Daniel.daniel
