In Marseille (France) begins the rally world Cup-2019, with the participation of 325 sailors from 40 countries. The first race tomorrow.
The competition will be held in ten of the current Olympic classes, as well as in kiteboarding debut which will take place at the Olympic Games in 2024. Moreover, in Marseille men and women will compete together.
In five kinds – 49er, 49erFX, Nacra 17 and RS:X men and women – the medal race will take place on Saturday. The rest on Sunday.
Recall that the first stage of this year’s world Cup was held in September last year in Enoshima (Japan), the second in February 2019 in Miami, and the third in April in Genoa. The first two stages of the Russian sailors essentially conceded (in Enoshima were five in Miami only two – Paul Sozykin and Denis Gribanov). Finally, in Genoa, Russia was represented quite well, but none of us in the medal race, alas, was not hit.
To participate in the finals of the world Cup in 2019 the Russians announced in four disciplines:
470 (men). Paul Sozykin/ Denis Gribanov.
RS:X (men). Evgeny Ayvazyan.
RS:X (women). Stefania Elfwina.
Kiteboarding. Denis Taradin.
Not, of course, our, but, hopefully, all the vests. We wish them success!
