In Miami – the first and second
Two yachts under the Russian flag set the tone for Miami, where the third stage of the Miami Winter Series in the Melges 20 class took place.
The first was Nika (RUS 309) Vladimir Prosikhina (Morgan Reaser, Charlie Smith): the team scored 13 points in six races (with one shot). Parishes (5) – 3 – 4 – 1 – 1 – 4.
Russian Bogatyrs (RUS 898) Igor Rytov (Anton Sergeev, Konstantin Besputin) fell behind the winners by 4 points. Their parishes (10) – 2 – 6 – 2 – 6 – 1.
Here is what Rytov wrote on his Facebook page:
“The third stage of the Miami episode ended. Two racing days. On the third day the wind never came. The races were held in difficult conditions. The whole water area was in algae. Unfortunately, only on the second day we found an effective way to combat them. However, second place is not bad. Three weeks later – the World Cup.
Well, we will follow. And we wish our success!
