We support the “Heroes” and “Nick”!
Here is another regatta, for which we will follow with special attention: the world championship in the class of yachts Melges 20 starts tomorrow in Miami.
You know, Miami is far away, and therefore there are only two yachts under the Russian flag this time, but both are among the main contenders for victory. Speech (you, of course, understood) – about “Russian heroes” by Igor Rytov and “Nika” by Vladimir Prosikhin.
Both crews of the Coconut Grove Sailing Club yacht club are perfectly familiar. Recall, for example, that just three weeks ago, it was there that the third stage of the Melges 20 Miami Winter Series took place, and Nika was the first, and Russian Bogatyrs took second place.
23 teams from nine countries will take part in the regatta. Most of all, of course, the owners of the Americans – 10 crews! According to the forecast in the coming days the weather will be very comfortable. 25 – 27 degrees Celsius, wind – 9 – 15 knots.
And the last. Two control races took place yesterday. The first was won by the STIG Italian skipper Alessandro Rombelli. In the second – “The Bogatyrs” of Rytov.
Personally, we like the second option much more.
