Another full day's racing at the 2009 Sao Paulo Formula Windsurfing Grand Prix with 4 races completed on the final day, and a total of 12 races in the series. Ross Williams continued where he left off on day 4, with 2 wins to his name, to ensure top position on the podium. However the first race of the day did not go according to plan - uncharacteristically Ross lost the early lead and the result was another fine win for Gabriel Browne (BRA 50) - closely followed by DEN 111 and BRA 999 who were having a private battle to secure the final two positions on the podium.
Ross won races 10 and 11 - but both Jesper and Wilhelm slipped up in race 11. A win for Willhelm in the final race meant he overhauled Jesper to finish the series in second place.
