As the press service of the WFTU, in Togliatti on the basis of yachts-club “Friendship” continues, the main regatta of the country – the championship of Russia in the seven Olympic classes.
Unstable weather conditions September 15 allowed to hold only one race in each class.

After the first race the wind “sour” to 3-5 knots. The weather is very unpredictable. We waited for some time: such a sport for boaters this is a common situation. But soon it was decided to complete today’s competition. Monday, there will be a windy day, and we’ll catch up the planned program,” said head coach Natalia Ivanova.
