Irina Gracheva: “It was a good race!”
Here is what Irina wrote after the finish line in the TROPHEE MARIE-AGNES PERON 2019 race on her Irina Gracheva Racing Mini-Transat 2019 page:
It was a good race!
MAP race results:
– 17 of 55 in serie
– 25 of 72 overall
Good start in a group with leaders.
Stretching and lagging under the spinnakers.
A long badge on Chaussee de Sein, and a long badde back, which managed to stay with the first group.
Squally cloud at the entrance to the bay.
Very correct tactical decisions on a lavirovka in the Gulf itself – they allowed me to play a few places in Pogo 3 and firmly establish myself in the group of new boats on my old lady, Kasach!
We became the only old boat among the new aircraft at the finish!
And for the first time I managed to leave all 100 and even 110% of my polar!
So, I managed to get to the finish line 3 hours ahead of schedule.
Thank you all for your congratulations! 6th place in yellow brick – it was a program error, of course. Miracles do not happen. But Kashasa and I will continue to do everything so that even small miracles happen to old boats in the distance!
