Igor Zaretsky starts in November
Urgent news from Esmeralda OK: "Friends, as a result of consultations with doctors, we are forced to officially announce the following: Igor will not be able to go to sea and continue the race in January.
Under the terms of the race, as we have already written, Esmeralda can complete it in the Chichester class at any time – with the same conditions and restrictions that were in effect before stopping in Australia. In Golden Globe Race there is no time limit for running the course, including for the Chichester class, where only one stop is allowed.
We hope that Igor will be able to continue the race in November 2019. In the near future, we will publish the appeal of Igor himself. "
