The 26th edition of the Port Burgas Bulstrad Cup 2019 Regatta has completed ……..

In the last race day for the Bulstrad 2019 Cup, there were many dynamic changes that left a bright mark on the final standings. Yesterday’s leader in the provisional ORC A and IRC 1 class – the crew of the Krone 1 yacht with skipper Mikhail Kopanov, surprisingly retired after the last race of the day was completed, presenting a declaration to the Race Committee stating that they were leaving the competition and their results racing days not to be counted in the final standings. Earlier, we quoted information from the Nauticabull.com media as to the reason behind these further actions – the regatta jury rejected a protest by Espresso Martini’s crew against Krone 1 because of incorrectly filing a protest for use of an engine by the Burgas crew after the crash on the shallows around St. Anastasia Island. After 7 races have been successfully completed, the final standings are as follows:
