Brits Take The Title
Flying Fifteen World Championship 2007
Pollença, Mallorca, Spain
Mike HART and Tim HALL (GBR) won the Flying Fifteen World Championship after tight finish in Mallorca, Spain. HART and HALL held their nerve in the final race to hold off fellow Brits Steve GOACHER and Phil EVANS and take the gold medal.
After a strong start by HART and HALL, GOACHER and EVANS had stormed back during the second half of the series in the Bay of Pollença to send the title battle to a final-race decider. A sixth place, two ahead of their rivals, gave HART and HALL the title with an overall winning margin of three points.
A bullet in the final race was enough for Aaron GOOGMANSON and Alister ROWLAN (NZL) to grab the final spot on the podium.
Seventy-three crews from eight nations competed in the gold fleet in Mallorca.
