In unstable wind
According to the VFPS press service, the main regatta of the country, the Russian championship in seven Olympic yacht classes, continues in Togliatti on the basis of the Druzhba yacht club.
Unstable weather conditions on September 15 allowed only one race in each class.
“The races took place with an unstable westerly wind of about 6 knots. It is not surprising that only the most experienced sailors could handle such a wind. After the first race, the wind “turned sour” to 3-5 knots. The weather is very unpredictable. We waited some time: such a sport, for sailors this is a common situation. But it was soon decided to end today's competition. On Monday, a windy day is expected, and we will catch up with the planned program, ”said Natalya Ivanova, head coach of the national team.
