Starting expectations regarding the difficult nature of the sea of Japan was completely justified, reports the website of the WFTU. For three days the participants experienced sunshine, rain, thunder and lightning, the wind in the range from 5 to 30 knots. And the wind still had to keep up, catch it and try to use it. Did not all and not always.
In complex Vladivostok “natural mixing” is almost impossible to understand if you’ve been chasing for the second time in my life. However, the agreement with the “Japanese God” obviously have yachtsmen of Vladivostok. No wonder it commands, which the control at the fifth stage of the League were local specialists, took the gold and silver of the regatta.
In the asset V phase 31 race. Sunday was spent nine starts, the results of which went to the final Protocol. Physically there were ten of them, but the results of the 32nd racing was cancelled (race stopped) in connection with the requirement of one of the teams to correct the result, which was associated with a violation start time of the race (according to the regulations the start of the final race of the day had to be given not later than 15.30, and was actually given to 15.39).
In the end, 14 teams played 10 races, and 12 – nine. The result of missing the race were calculated for each of the groups as the average for the regatta.
If we talk about the resurrection, the struggle for water was fierce. Virtually every race was a moment that cast the team in the lead back and pushed ahead of the Laggards. And certainly in each of the races had their nerve…
However, despite the unpredictability, composed of the winners of phase V in the top division all the same teams that made up the top three at the end of the Sabbath.
“Japanese God” favored by Calipso with the steering Ilya Polishchuk, “Lord sails – Europe” with the steering Valery Dychenko and ArtTube RUS1, at the wheel which was Igor Lisovenko. Only changed the sequence: gold went to “masters of sail” from Ekaterinburg, silver team from Tuapse, and bronze – the leader of the season.
In fourth place in the regatta went to team Leviathan Vadim Achinson, the fifth – “the Master of the sails – Asia” Sergei Musikhina, the sixth X-Fit, on the wheel which was Valery Zatsarinsky.
Well, what about points? The winner broke away from her nearest competitor by 4.9, second and sixth place were separated by just 6 points, and the teams ranked 3-5 places, scored equal points and were placed on a formation only by the additional parameters. Here out of competition ArtTube RUS1, who won in Vladivostok four wins – more than any other participant in the regatta.
There are teams, and this is one of the strongest in the Premier League, which is the stage in Vladivostok did not go to the benefit. These include Navigator Sailing Team, Igor Rytov, “Konakovo river club” by Mark Kagan and “Pirogovo” Yuri Morozov. Their Vladivostok the results, unfortunately, will drop those teams down in the standings of the season. Recall that this year there is no emission of the worst result of the regatta and each unsuccessful imposes a significant burden on the final result of the team.
Standings of the season at the finish of phase V have not been finalized, but a preliminary estimate suggests that the three leaders – ArtTube RUS1, Leviathan and Calipso are still in their places.
The final regatta of the top division – Grand final – will be held 1-4 November in Sevastopol.
