From Russia With Love - Rytov Wins European Championship

Congratulations to 2017 Melges 20 European Champions Igor Rytov at the helm of RUSSIAN BOGATYRS and crew members Konstantin Besputin and Anton Sergeev. From the early beginning they gained the overall lead, but Rytov admits that getting to the top of this incredible Melges 20 World League fleet was not easy, and staying there is no easy task either.

In the Corinthian division, it was an exciting final day as Marco Giannini's EVINRUDE pulled ahead to beat Marina Kaverzina's MARUSSIA for the highly-coveted all-amatuer 2017 Melges 20 Corinthian Championship title.
