The first final race started at 10:00hrs and Hannah Mills (GBR), leader after 5 races, did a good job by finishing sixth while her biggest rivals like Gijs Pelt (NED - second after 5 races) and Patrick Follman (GER - third after 5 races) got stuck in the second half of the gold fleet.
Before the last race could be started the race committee had to postpone due to lack of wind. After all the last race started around 13:30hrs with some more black flags and for the bronze fleet a shortened course. Well begun is half done, so Hannah Mills could sail her discard race, finishing 72, and won the 18th International Easter Optimist Regatta with a strong lead. Oskar Taurel (SWE) had a good last day which brought him from 8th place after 5 races to second place overall, before the first Dutch and second female competitor on the podium, Rikst Dijkstra.
