"The storm in the mist …"
On the second day of the 1st grade regatta in the Dragon class – the Dragon Grand Prix de Cannes, which takes place in Cannes and is also the first stage of the European series this year, we managed to hold only one race.
Look at the pictures. Involuntarily recall the famous Pushkin's "Storm in the Darkness …". There was no snow whirlwind, but the wind turned over the water brutally, giving the teams a lot of trouble.
We can say that the wicked weather won against the Russian yachtsmen. The best result among them in the only race of the day showed Dmitry Samokhin's Rocknrolla: the team has the 9th parish, and now in the overall standings it has dropped from sixth position to the seventh (23 points).
The rest of the cases are worse: Annapurna Anatoly Loginov was the seventh – became the ninth (41 points), and the publisher of our magazine Vasily Senatorov (To be continued) made an unpleasant fall from the 9th line to the 18th – now he has 56 points. Immediately after him in the table, Igor Goyhberg (Zenith) – 57.
Victorflower Fogelson’s Sunflower is now at 34th position, and Mikhail Senatorov’s Integrity is at 47th.
As for the regatta leaders, the German Sinewave led the way, led by Thomas Muller (10 points), followed by another team from Germany – Marcus Brennecke's Cameleer (15) and Gordon Grant's British Louise Racing.
Need to catch up. What our famous crews, let's hope, today and take.
