The first race was won by Jonathan and Phoebe Branch in B2, claiming their first win for the Worlds. Wave Catcher (Cullen Hughes and James Hughes) came second, but Rumble Fish came third, preserving their lead.
In the second race, Rumble Fish came first to pull further away on the leader board, with B2 second and Wave Catcher third. With one race to go, and a second drop now applying, only a disaster could stop Rumble Fish now.
As the leaders crossed the line, it was Bob (Damian Carey and Austin Freer), ending as they had begun with yet another race win. Second was Bulletproof (Simon and Tyson Barwood), with Rumble Fish in third to clinch the title in emphatic style.
A special mention also goes to Molly Stening, who bravely sailed on after taking a spinnaker pole to the face. Her boat, Blue, came second overall in the Classic Division.
As is tradition, the new World Champions stayed out on the water until all the other boats had come ashore, and then they were carried up the ramp to the sound of the Dutch and Australian national anthems. Alle and Anna Roodbergen were there to celebrate with the other sailors.
