In Barcelona (Spain) ended with the traditional “Christmas regatta” – 43rd Palamós Christmas Race.

It was planned four days of racing, but I had to limit myself to two. On Thursday, the launches did not take place due to too strong wind, and today, Saturday, due to the fact that there was no wind at all.

If you remember, in the 470 class (30 participants) after the first day of the regatta, and three races were leading our Paul Sozykin and Denis Gribanov – 5 points, two first and one third parishes. But in the end the strong Russian crew were only nine. What happened?

Here’s what Paul wrote and Denys, answering the question of Yacht Russia:
