In Riva del Garda (Italy) is the fourth stage of the European Melges 20 division of the World League.
Held five races – two on Friday, three today. According to their results ahead of the Italian Siderval (skipper Marco Giannini). The team is known – so, in the previous, third stage, Siderval became the second (after our Russian Bogatyrs). But wonder what advantage the Italians now, on lake Garda, in the lead. They have 16 points, while another Italian team – Brontolo Racing Filippo Pacinotti, which is the second – 33.
It’s surprising that after the first racing day of Russian Bogatyrs Igor Rytov, who lead the overall standings of the European division of the Melges 20 World League, has occupied only 10-th place (wards 15 – 6). Today is also a long time did not go well (in the first two races of the day 8th and 12th finishes). Fortunately, the third race of the day, “Heroes” won and greatly improved their position: they are now fifth in the table (42 points).
At the same time on the third line – Pirogovo Alexander ezhkov (36 points). Today, the team won the first two races, but in the third… was only 20 minutes. It will be interesting to learn what caused this failure.
It remains to add that on the seventh line Meduza Pavel Grachev (47 points), and to wish the Russian crews good luck in the final day of the regatta.
