Race eight saw them take eighth, and with the wind dying before a final race nine could be started the Championship was theirs.
Canadians Grant LAMONT and Tom EGLI failed to score a bullet, but were steady in the 3-6 range and landed second overall. Meanwhile Australians Heather MACFARLANE and Chris PAYNE were hungry for a ninth race to throw out a 22 and 26, but in the end it was not to be. Two firsts helped secure them a third place on countback from early leaders Sam METTAM and Keri HARRIS (GBR).
The awards ceremonies took place in the Canadian Forces Base Officer mess. In accepting the prize for first place Erich explained that he had, 'always wanted to be a champion' since a young age. He explained that repeatedly, 'I came so close. Now I am finally the World Fireball Champion!'
