The Formula Kite world championship 2019 ended at lake Garda. The Russian team took third place in the team standings, athlete of the school “Krestovsky island” Valery Kraiko, became second in the competition among athletes under 19 years. According to the press service of “Krestovsky island”:
– On the final day of the race is not given: much the barrel, fixed the maximum at a distance of 56 knots, – told the high school coach Alex Chibizov. – Although all day we waited for – once pocketnet, the gold fleet had to go the distance. For the rest, to ensure the safety was impossible. Waited all day, but never came out.
Denis Taradin eventually took ninth place. There were objective reasons – a lot of time to study, made some mistakes. But, basically, we lacked only one more qualifying days to go in the gold fleet with minimal points. I was hoping to start today, in good wind is our weather. But alas…
A little bit about team racing. Very interesting format are invited for the Olympics. It will be possible to say that the explosion. Everything is clear, a tactical battle starts even in the transit area athletes, and to her. We took third place one point from the Americans. If given one more race, the worst result would go on the release and most likely we would have taken first place. Compared to the us athlete Evan Heffernan Denis looked very good. And he brought Lena Kalinina odds that she Daniela Moroz was time to drive off and just keep the gap. Daniela is a very strong athlete. She’s slowly catching up, but she lacked the distance.
Very interesting project, a show that soon will be a new format in sailing, especially for extreme types: catamarans, hydrofoils. Everything is dynamic and clear.
Lera Garashchenko – well done. Showed good potential speed for his age. Every race fought in the first five. You need to improve the stability, to work with the equipment and participate in competitions. While she is not able to overcome the emotions. As soon as more practice will improve. She deserved the result, but to the same Daniela Moroz is still to plow and plow.
Another success in the team competition we took third place. Ahead of us the Americans and the French.
Now back in Spain, training. According to plan the championship of this country. And then Denis will perform in China in qualification for World Beach Games. Directly from China to Marseille for the world Cup, which invited only TOP20.
