“The medal race was very hard, the constant visits and wards of the wind, as on the lake waters, said Lomachenko press service of the Academy sailing of the Yacht club of Saint-Petersburg. – There were a lot of unexpected situations. It is clear that the start was bad, then I hit the Italian, she was hyped. I loosened, went to the sunset and at the first sign of bounced back. Well went to FordeWind, but still made a lot of mistakes. For this regatta I made a lot of deficiencies, made findings and corrected them, and on some errors I still need to work on. There is room to grow. I believe that from the point of view of training and preparation for the world championship in the class “Laser radial” this regatta was very productive.”
