Ours, alas, far
After two final qualifying races, held yesterday at the World Championship in the class "Optimist", which takes place on the island of Antigua, the last hopes that someone from the young Russians will get into the Golden Fleet have melted.
The best of ours – Ivan Zhilkin – is now in the table only in 147th place. In the last two races of qualification, he twice finished 25th. The rest of the Russian guys did not submit such results on Wednesday. And here are their current places in the table:
150. Fedor Krivobokov. … 171. Artem Maksimkin. … 181. Danila Ivanov. … 185. Maxim Bondar.
At this time, a change of leader took place at the top. Maltese Richard Schulteys was ahead (albeit by just one point) the two-time winner of world championships among the "optimists" Italian Marco Gradoni.
