Held in spectacular Florida sunshine, the event was eventually won by Swedish sailors Gustaf FRESK & Aron ANDERSSON. They dominated to such an extent that they didn't need to sail the final race, and opted to sit it out on the shore.
Gustav FRESK is a past World Champion in the 2.4mR, claiming the title in 1995. More recently Gustav has competed in the Sonar, qualifying Sweden for the 2004 Paralympic Games from his results at the 2003 IFDS World Championship. Presuming Gustav is selected to represent Sweden, it will mark his third appearance at the Paralympics in the Sonar, having participated both in 1996 and 2000 placing fourth each time. With crew Aron ANDERSSON, Gustav pulled out an early lead in the nine race series and clearly settled into a winning pace.
