The Awards Ceremony of the Sailing Fedor Konyukhov Cup Regatta for children was held on June 10th, on the Lake of Turgoyak in the Chelyabinsk region. The closing event was performed by Oleg Sirotin, President of Turgoyak National Park of Sports and Tourism, who gave the awards to the winners. A Russian bard and musician Oleg Mityaev was invited as a special guest, and he read the greeting message from Fedor Konyukhov, the great Russian traveler, addressed to the participants of the ceremony. Fedor himself could not participate in this event, as he was involved in the preparation for the around-the-world trip in Australia.
The team from Kamyshin won the regatta. The second place in team classification was won by the team from Tolyatti, and the third place was given to the Sevastopol team.
According to Vladimir Abdulgazin, the chief judge of the competition, the regatta was quite dynamic, entertaining and interesting. Several dozens of kids demonstrated an excellent level of skills.
The Optimist Class sailing competition was hosted by the Miass club and hotel - Golden Beach, and "AKROS" acted as a general sponsor of the event. The competition was also supported by the Ministry of Sports and by the All-Russia Sailing Sports Federation.
- Miass regatta occupies a special place in the Russian sailors' schedules - says Elena Oschurkova, the coach of the Chkalovets Sailors' Club from Novosibirsk. – But it is unique not only due to its sporty content and performance. Kids' interests are counted here, as nowhere else in our country. In this regard, our regatta is as good as any European regatta, where entertainments and festivities alternate with sailing races.
"AKROS", as a general sponsor of the event, held a technical workshop for the Clients, devoted to New Technologies in drilling fluids for enhancement of drilling efficiency.
