Three champions decided on the final race of the Boracay RS:One World Championships
Posted On:  15/12/2012 16:37:07

Three races on the last day of the 2012 RS:ONE World Championships - and three new champions, all decided on the final race of the day! With no discards - all races count - no one could afford to make a mistake. And no one made a mistake!

The closest final race emerged in the women's fleet - Hei Man Chan (Hong Kong) put in a storming performance to win the race, but Marina Alabau pushed her all the way, took second place and the Women's World Title, two points ahead on the leaderboard.  Bryony Shaw from Great Britain took the bronze, only one point adrift of the silver place.  Despite some good scores posted by ladies further down the fleet, the gap between the top three and the rest of the fleet was huge.

In the Men's fleet Geylord Coveta (Philippines) did not have his best race of the series, but did enough to take the title, finishing a clear 8 points ahead of Chang Hao from Taiwan. Yuta Nagano from Hong Kong was third.

The overnight leaders in the Espoir Men's (under 22 ) fleet had mixed fortunes, particularly in the final race ; but a first and fourth in the day's other races were enough for Chun Ting Lee (Hong Kong) to take that title.  Hong Kong's Lok Yiu To took silver and fellow countryman Yancy Kaibigan took bronze.  Again, good scores posted by many further down the fleet - 7 different competitors took bullets at some point during the competition, and our champion only won three of the 14 races - but consistency was the key to the title.
