In Malcesine on lake Garda in Italy, ended today with the championship in the yacht class J/70.
The gold was won by the hosts – team crew Petite Terrible with skipper Claudia Rossi. The Champions scored 44 points. 15 more points to the Germans from Mission Possible, led by Markus Wieser. In third place again the Italians – the crew Jcurve Mauro Roversi (65 points).
And what about our? The top ten Russians, alas, missed. Best result – 15th place- the crew led by Andrei Malygin on the yacht Maria. A 16-m – Joyfull (Denis Cherevatenko).
I have other Russian teams in the Gold fleet:
18. Akhmat (Alexander Bozhko). …20. MSailing – CSKA (Michael Polakowski). … 23. Amais Sailing Team (Sergey Dobrovolsky). …27. Zid art Sailing Team (Zoran paunović). …31. RUS83 (Alexander ezhkov). 32. Jane (Dmitry Tretyakov). …34. ArtTube (Valeria Kovalenko). …45. New Territories (Alex Semenov). 46. Kotyara (Oleg Evdokimenko). …59. Dolce Vita (Inna Balashova).
Plus eight more Russian teams were in the Silver fleet.
The mass is evident. But as argued in the old days, that’s it – the mass – in the end must ensure the skills.
