Concluded international sailing regatta Cup Ust-Luga 2019. Victory it was won by the team of the Maritime rescue service of Russia. For three years of participation in competitions rescuers for the second time win the trophy.
The fate of first place in the senior division, whose members, according to the current Regulation on competition, and compete for the challenge Cup were decided on the last day of the regatta. Moreover, the final standings remained unclear even during the last race – the places all set, only the conversion time based on the racing points. Just a little not enough Ust-Luga Company to stay ahead of rivals on points. Stage in Kotka team won, but FURIOSA was the second that led to the final scores are equal, and the victory of Marsaskala additional indicators – the rescuers won more races on the Cup.
Detailed analysis has not yet arrived. However, we can already note the acute competition, we witnessed in the two divisions for the challenge Cup in the senior category and the dispute over the distribution of prizes in the second group, where everything is left vague until the finish of the last yacht finishing the race. Also worthy of special attention is the performance in the third division team “Rosmorport” on the boat POSTIMEES, which has not lost this race a single race.
Sailors from the Maritime rescue service of Russia retained the title of winner of the regatta and the right to have a Cup Ust-Luga for another year. Thus breaking one of the “rules” that had always worked two times in a row the Cup has never won any team.
We will add that in addition to the main prizes at a ceremony held last weekend in St. Petersburg, individual awards were given to the team of Russian Railways. Yacht “Loko” has won first place in the race Tallinn-Helsinki, which was established by the special prize of the General sponsor of a regatta – DAMEN Trophy. Second and third place in this category went to team “Smelt” and POSTIMEES.
