EUROSAF Match Racing, European Open Championship, 2013

Sails of the White Nights – National Congress Palace Cup

Andrew Arbuzov is crowned EUROSAF Open Match Racing Champion 2013 and winner of the Sails of the White Nights – National Congress Palace Cup

Despite the best efforts of the wind, the Race Committee met the challenge of completing the Championship in St Petersburg on Sunday, to find the European Open Match Race Champion of 2013. In excess of 60 races were completed over the four days of the championship and the outcome was a win for Andrew Arbuzov from Russia.

To complete the event at all was a fantastic achievement on the part of the Race Committee, because, with very few exceptions, wind speeds seldom exceeded 10 knots and with the current of the River Neva, the boats made slow progress. There were times in the day when the wind almost disappeared altogether, resulting in much waiting around for sailors and officials alike. Having taken three days to complete the first round-robin stage, the race committee decided they had no option but to abandon the quarter final stage and jump straight to the semi-finals start on Sunday morning. Arbuzov, who had topped the leader board after the round-robin stage, was paired against his fellow countryman Sergey Musikhin, while in the second semi-final Simone Ferrarese from Italy was drawn against Eric Monnin from Switzerland. The wind, however, took control, and after completing just four races, with each crew winning one race, the Race Committee took the decision to cancel the semi-final and go straight to the final.
