The conditions under which hosted the regatta, was, shall we say, specific. Here is just one example: on Friday in Melbourne recorded the highest air temperature in 143 years of observations is 44 degrees Celsius! On the water, of course, was cooler, but not by much. Thanks to the organizers, to make life easier for yachtsmen to finish they waited for the bath with ice.
The owner of “Golden Cup” tal 30-year-old new Zealander Josh Junior. Prior to that, wins in his record was not the biggest success – second place at one stage of the world Cup in 2016. But in Melbourne he played brilliantly took the lead after the first day of the regatta – and so championship to anyone and not given, typing in a total of 44 points.
