The British broke the tradition
In the city of Torquay on the English Riviera (south-west of Great Britain) today, two races ended the world championship in the class of yachts J / 70, in which 77 teams from 20 countries took part, including 4 crews under the Russian flag.
In just five days, 14 races were held. According to their results (with two outliers), the victory went to the hosts – the British team Eat Sleep J Repeat (skipper Paul Ward). This is the command you see in the first picture. A curious touch: Ward's crew managed to break the tradition – the Americans always won at all previous world championships.
As for the Russians, then immediately three teams ended up next. In ninth place – Maria (Andrey Malygin, Leonid Klepikov, Andrey Kirilyuk, Alexey Borisov). On the tenth – ArttubeRus1 (Valeria Kovalenko, Igor Lisovenko, Denis Rozhkov, Sergey Avdonin. Pavel Savenko). And at the eleventh – Akhmat (Alexander Bozhko, Mikhail Sheremetev, Maxim Sheremetev, Roman Konstantinov, Hasan Hadzhiev).
Another team under the Russian flag – Joyfull (Denis Cherevatenko, Vladimir Chaus, Victor Filippov, Artem Markov) became the 22nd overall. But at the same time she took third place in the Corinthian division, with which we congratulate her!
The Amaiz Sailing Team (Sergey Dobrovolsky, Victor Serezhkin, Yegor Terpigorev, Vyacheslav Martynov) performed under the flag of Cyprus – in the 23rd position. Belarusian Pavetra (Alexander Rachevsky, Andrey Bratan, Petr Lezhnin, Ilya Fear) – on the 61st.
