"Heroes"! Did you doubt
On Sunday, the second and final day of the Russian Cup in the Melges 20 class, only one race was held in Malcesine on Lake Garda. By the sum of two days and three races held, the victory went to the “Russian heroes”. Have you doubted?
Recall that the first day the strongest Russian team in recent years, Russian Bogatyrs (Igor Rytov, Anton Sergeyev, Konstantin Besputin) finished in third place (arrivals 11 and 1, 12 points). In the only Sunday race, the team became the second – and in total took the first position so familiar to themselves.
The Russian Cup regatta was held for the 7th time (formerly it was called the Russian Open), and this year 20 teams took part in it, including 9 under the Russian flag.
The second place was taken by the Italian Camay (skipper – Lauro Bonora, 15 points), the third – the Russian Alex Team Alexander Mikhailik (17).
Full results –
And already on September 11 in the same place, in Malcesine, where the few Russian Cup races took place, the European Championship in the Melges 20 class starts. Good luck to our crews!
