Laser Radial World Championship
Buffalo Canoe Club, Ontario

After a 1 hour delay on shore a light south westerly wind of 9 knots filled in for the final day of racing at the Laser Radial Open and Women’s World Championship at Buffalo Canoe Club, Canada.

In the Women's championship Katarzyna Szotynski from Poland scored a third behind her closest rival, Miranda Powrie NZL and race winner Abigail Devlin USA to take her third Laser Radial title with a race to spare.

In the Open Championship Karlo Krpeljevic from Croatia did not have it so easy, scoring an eighth place. His nearest rival Chris Ashley USA helped him by scoring his worst place in the series, a seventeenth. Race winner Ryan Minth USA started at the committee boat end of the line and was never headed. He said: "I sailed out to the right hand side on the beat and down the other side on the run".

Ashley still had a chance if he could score a top three placing in the last race but lost that chance after being disqualified for only completing 7/8 of a penalty turn for a rule 42 infringement.
