Tomasz Januszewski (POL) confirmed the improved standard of Polish sailing, shown by their victory in the Europeans, to take fourth ahead of Hannah MILLS (GBR)
Hannah had had to sail conservatively ever since her second OCS in Race 7 but strung together a set of excellent results to win the girls prize by a large margin. With three sailors in the top 12 this was by far the best British performance for decades.
Joaquin BLANCO, double European champion and sailing in his own club, was always going to be under pressure and it is a tribute to his resilience that he achieved an excellent sixth.
221 sailors from 50 countries participated and by general consent this was the best Worlds for years thanks to superb winds and the wonderful people and facilities which make up the R.C.N. Gran Canaria.
