In Risør (Norway) is coming to the end of the world championship in the classes 49er, 49erFX and the Nacra17. That’s what the situation is before the last day of the regatta (we will Remind that in “Nacre” our not, there is generally involved only 9 crews).
In the 49er after 11 races, the leaders are new Zealanders Isaac Makhardi and William Mackenzie 20 points (with one outlier). The only Russian Duo Mikhail Ushkov/ Kirill Boboshko occupies 37th place.
In the 49erFX after 12 races, continues to lead Swede Wilma Bobek and Malin tengstrem – 56 points (with one outlier). But a quiet life they should not wait too close to the opponent. In second place Villemin Offerman/ Elise Ruiter (Holland) – 61 points, the third Alexander Stadler/ Silvia Speri (Italy) is 63. So can still turn on the head.
The Russian crews in the distribution of participation medals, alas, will not be accepted, although two of them were in the top ten. But to reach it will not be able for any scenario. Daniel Usachev/ Ilya Ganeev take 7-th place, they have 123 points. The ninth – Zoya Novikova and Diana Sabirova – 132 points. In this very close – on the 11th position and our third Duo: the sum of Vasily Andreyev and Leonid Pusheva – 141 point.
This here is a heap statement. That in itself is a reason for optimism.
