The gold medal at the championship of Russia went to the seaside sportsmen

The crew of the "Cadet" class yacht consisting of Ilya Gaidaenko and Taras Zhigalov won a gold medal at the Russian open sailing championship.

According to the Department of Physical Culture and Sports of Primorsky Krai, the competition took place in St. Petersburg in the waters of the Gulf of Finland. In total, 268 athletes from 9 to 15 years from 59 subjects of the Russian Federation took part in the national championship.

The honor of the Primorsky Territory was defended by students of the Seven Feet Yacht Club - Daniel Maistrovsky, Ilya Polyvyanny, Leonid Skorikov, Ulyana Lyubimova, Elena Obedzinskaya, Nikolai Gikalov in the Optimist class and Ilya Gaidaenko and Taras Zhigalov in the Cadet class.

From the first day yachtsmen entrenched in the top three, and in the following days they only increased their advantage.

According to the winner of the championship of Russia Ilya Gaidaenko, it's much harder to take part in competitions together because of a sense of responsibility.

“Now I won as a helmsman, which is much more serious, speaking with Taras Zhigalov. Next year I plan to play in the 420 class, ”Ilya Gaidaenko said.

Recall that since 2014, the seaside crew is part of the youth team of Russia in its class number one.

In the class "Optimist" Elena Obedzinskaya took 3 place among girls.

Note that, following the results of the Russian Championship, a team was formed to participate in the world championship in the class “Optimist”. The national team of five athletes will go to Argentina. One of them is Leonid Skorikov, and Aleksey Voloshenko, the coach of the “Seven Feet” yacht club, will lead the team.
