Igor Rutovu and “Russian heroes” has failed to win the fourth stage of the European Melges 20 division of the World League, which is today, Sunday 14 July – ended in Riva del Garda (Italy).
We will remind, the first day of the regatta, “Heroes” finished in an unusual 10th place and second on the 5th, and this time they are behind the leader – Italian Siderval (skipper Marco Giannini), amounted to 26 points! Was it possible to hope to catch up with the Italians?
In the end, not caught up. But after 8 races left behind by only 5 points! The winners – Siderval – 30 points, second prize – “Heroes” – 35.
However, in the picture, as you can see, Igor Rytov watered winning champagne. Why? Because the regatta on lake Garda was the final stage of the European Melges 20 division of the World League this season, and the Rytov along with his team became a winner!
This congratulations. And with the fact that in those days he became a grandfather! So many events at once!
