Sails of White Nights - The National Congress Palace Cup - EUROSAF MR Open Championship
St-Petersburg, Russia

The final day of the Sails of White Nights - The National Congress Palace Cup - EUROSAF Match Race Open Championship was not without surprises as tricky breeze and judging decisions made for a frustrating final day for competitors.
The two semi-finals that were played out between Russian compatriots Andrew Arbuzov and Sergey Musikhin and Italy's Simone Ferrarese and Switzerland's Erik Monnin started later than scheduled.

With both semi-finals locked at one race win apiece the wind died and suspense of waiting for the wind ensued. As the time allotted to the semi-final stage passed a decision was made to cancel the semi-final results and fight for the podium places based on the round-robin results.

This put Arbuzov against Ferrarese and Musikhin against Monnin.

The Russians won their confrontations as Arbuzov defeated Ferrarese 2-0 to take gold whilst Musikhim defeated Monnin by the same scoreline to pick up bronze.

Top Four

1. Andrew Arbuzov (RUS)
2. Simone Ferrarese (ITA)
3. Sergey Musikhin (RUS)
4. Erik Monnin (SUI)
