After losing out to Per MOBERG (NOR) in the Medal Race of the ISAF Grade 1 Rolex Miami OCR, HOEGH-CHRISTENSEN immediately stamped his authority on the Midwinters with scores of 1,1,1,3,1 in the opening five races. From there on in the Danish World Champion never looked like losing control of the 26 strong Finn fleet and ended up a comfortable winner.

Pieter-Jan POSTMA (NED) finished strongly to come in second overall, whilst Zach RAILEY (USA) repeated his 2006 result by finishing third, just ahead of Dan SLATER (NZL).

Brendan CASEY (AUS) again demonstrated the rapid improvement he has made since switching from the Laser to the Finn last year, coming in fifth overall.

The Finn Midwinters are taking place as part of the Winter Circuit surrounding the ISAF Grade 1 Rolex Miami OCR.
