Russian Bogatyrs Igor Rytov were winners which ended on Sunday in Miami (USA) 2-stage Melges 20 Miami Winter Series.
Rytov and Co scored in eight races (with one outlier) 15 points. Parishes– 2 – 3 – 1 – 5 – (6) – 1 – 2 – 1. A brilliant result!
It is worth noting that Russian Bogatyrs was in the lead on the first day of the regatta, and then a second. However, before the final day of the regatta inadvertently crept doubt. At this point, the “Heroes” had 17 points, and the Americans from Heartbreaker Robert Hughes – 19. At the same time Rytov worst result, which was in the end to go on the release, was 6-th place, and the Hughes – 12th!
So everything depended on the three racing Sundays. And “Heroes” had their brilliant: they came first, second, and first again. In sum, as you already know, got 15 points. And Heartbreaker – 29. As they say, feel the difference.
While the second place was taken by another team under the Russian flag – NIKA Vladimir Prosikhin, who scored 26 points.
It will be recalled that at the 1st stage Melges 20 Miami Winter Series, held in December, “NICK” was the first “Heroes” second, despite the fact that both teams scored 24 points.
The third and final stage of the series will take place 13 – 15 March.heroesmiami
