The main judge of competitions Anna Deyanova summed up the results of the competition:

– Sailing school “Krestovsky island” for the first time carried out the championship of Russia. In any case, the organization of such major events is a very difficult job, and therefore a big thank you to everyone who was involved in the organization and conduct of this regatta.

Even the older athletes took part in the regatta – as judges.

The first day we very quickly and easily held the race is scheduled. It was cold but good wind contributed an interesting race. The same was expected from the second day, but he sprang a surprise: after eight races in the Optimist class, the wind turned sour and we had to wait a long time on the water. After two and a half hours, “lenses” was released on the shore – the second round was not held, and finalists were determined in the first round. And the “optimists” still raced until six or seven in the evening, after the second round in gold and silver fleets.

The final day – the day of the finals. The wind did not disappoint. 8-10 knots – a wonderful wind. Met really the best team.

In the class “Zoom 8” team river yacht club won the team of the school “Krestovsky island” 3:0 in the fight for third place in the second team “Krestovsky island” yielded “Raut” 0:2. There were no major surprises.

But in the class “Optimist” every race was either someone’s death or someone else’s delight. It began with the fact that in the fight for first place the first race was won by the team “Krestovsky island”. In the second race had gone to a false start, the riders led the team to defeat. Although the chances of winning were. In the end the score 4:1 in favor of “the Rout”. Fought the tears at the finish line literally in inches…

For the third place “the Banquet” also won “Krestovsky island”, and hosts the championship again failed a false start. Moreover, the driver can return, but, diving into the target, crossed the start line. And although his team came to the finish line first, the false start led to the loss.

In General was so beautiful, the fight that was admiring and riders, and judges.

During these three days, young athletes become true tactics. From this point of view command of the race in General more interesting individual. Here is all about tactics and cooperation. It was interesting to observe how team members help each other. How get backward together to “lead” opponents. All this, again, the children have learned in three days. The difference between the first and the final day was striking.

I especially want to mention the involvement of young judges for the competition. Amirami worked young judges and riders Alexander Agafonov, Polina Soloveichik, Oleg Bykov and Elena Obodzinska. It is for them an enormous experience, and we are preparing new frames!

Organizations conducting competition were the sailing school “Krestovsky island”, RUSODA, ryf and HGA.
