RAILEY won her second North American title on countback thanks to her two second place finishes to MULTALA's one (both had three bullets on their scorecard). Going into the final race, RAILEY led by a single point, from ISAF Grade 1 Rolex Miami OCR winner MULTALA.
MULTALA lay down the gauntlet by winning her third race of the series, but RAILEY was able to respond with a second to secure overall victory. The win will be particularly gratifying for the young American after she retired from the Miami OCR having been yellow flagged three times.
MULTALA's second place, added to her first in Miami a week ago, is sure to see her leap up from her current World Ranking of 19 in the next release of the ISAF World Sailing Rankings on Wednesday 7 February.
World #1 Anna TUNNICLIFFE (USA) secured third place overall in the 40 strong fleet, with a fourth in the final race.
