“Russian heroes” – the winners of the Melges 20 World League!
In Miami, the first stage of the Miami Winter Series-2019/20 in the Melges 20 yacht class took place. At the same time, it was the last – 15th – stage of the 2019 Melges 20 World League. And the winner of the World League became Russian Bogatyrs, led by Igor Rytov!
This time, “Bogatyrs” performed in Miami with Rytov, Konstantin Besputin and Valery Zatsarinsky – and remained second, scoring 24 points in eight races (with one throw). Another yacht under the Russian flag – Nika Vladimir Prosikhin scored the same points. It was this team that became the winner of the stage.
