Tension increases

According to the website http://www.parusniy-sport.org, the next, already the 3rd day of qualification of the sailing competitions of the 30th Summer Universiade in Naples passed in difficult conditions – closer to the shore, with a strong wave and with a strong gusty wind . The organizers, given the backlog from the plan, started earlier and spent 12 races in a day. Short races with a strong wind did not forgive a single mistake. Fatigue from the stress of the past days and the hot weather also began to show up.

Almost no one escaped failures – especially the leader of the previous days, the Finnish team. She dropped to 2nd place and became much closer to other rivals. But the outsiders of the past days also strongly pursed themselves against the leaders – in general, everything was mixed up.

The Australian team, which became the leader, proved to be strong. Two teams of Singapore have advanced. With a good arrival in its last race, the Austrian team was also able to bypass our team.

The Russians recorded in their assets the finishes of the 3rd, 8th, 7th, 2th. As a result, we are in 6th position with an average score of 4.08 after 12 races. The closest rivals are two Singapore teams (3.54 and 3.71 points), Austria (3.8). The team of Germany is at the back (4.25). Second place (Finland) is also not far – 3.14 points.

There are still 7 qualifying races ahead (we participate in 4 of them). Based on the qualification results, 8 best teams will be selected to the final. The places occupied in qualifying will be credited to them as the result of one final race, and another 4 races are planned for the final determination of the medalists.
