Oleg Vasiliev strengthened his leadership
Our special correspondent, Viktor Akatsevich, transmits from Sweden, where the second race day of the European Championship in ice-cream sports in the Monotype XV class came to an end.
Good evening, dear readers. I continue my reports from the European Championships in ice boating. By the way, this year in one place European championships are held in two classes at once – DN and Monotype XV. The result was a gorgeous week of weeks with races, seminars and parties in the evenings in a friendly atmosphere.
But back to the actual race. In the Monotype XV class today, on Tuesday, only one race was held with a weak unstable wind. It was won by the Russian driver Oleg Vasiliev (R1), having strengthened his leadership in the championship. But in general, the riders who chose the left side of the water area managed to get the distance better.
In this championship, the Grand Prix classification system is used, in which all participants finish after the leader (who has covered the entire distance) in their current lap, that is, lagging boer players still have the opportunity to get points, despite the reduced distance. This allows you to reduce the time of the race in light winds and to push the boer less if the wind subsides.
As usual, today I took a short interview with boerists. This time my interlocutors were the Estonian racers Indrek Avik and Siim Valgre (C14):
"Estonia has a long tradition of boer racing. At the same time, the state helps boer sports, partly finances boer sections. Children have the opportunity to go boer sports directly in schools. The most developed boating sports are on the islands of Saaremaa and Hiyumaa. All Estonian riders actively communicate with each other, exchange experience And this can be seen from the results: our crews are in a tight group in the standings, claiming victory. In addition, the leading racers themselves are building a buer for children. We believe that these are great t aditsii! "
