PIRogovo is in the lead!
The program of the second day of the Winter Series Act 1 was exceeded beyond expectations as the racing committee was able to hold not three, but four races. The fourth race took place because of yesterdays’ light winds.
After the second the results are looking as follows.
It happened as it was destined and PIRogovo added three more victories to Fridays’ results and they are leading in the overall rankings of the Jefferson Capital Cup. Alexander Ezhkov’s PIRogovo team is extremely well prepared and a very stable team; it is very tough to fight them right now.
Alexander Novoselov’s Victor was shining yesterday but was eventually placed 7th. However, today they moved up significantly in the rankings. This team has been on the podium three times and they are the main contender for the victory in Act 1. Novoselov is behind Ezhkov by only three points.
The following five teams are packed quite tightly: their results are within 6 points, which means any of these teams (Alex Team, Synergy, Nika, Marussia and Pavel Grachev’s team) can be runners up of the first Act of the Dynamiq Yachts Melges 20 Monaco Winter Series.
The gap between these five teams and leading teams PIRogovo and Victor is 11 points, which can be still overcome.
Unfortunately, we cannot say the same about team Leviathan, who had glorious start on the previous day. It seems like the wings of Vadim Yakhinson’s and Maxim Titarenko’s team were clipped today: three times placed 9th and once 12th. They are now placed 8th in the overall rankings with a gap by 24 points.
The kickoff of tomorrows’ races is planned at 11.00 am (CEST). There can be four races held according to the racing schedule.
