The wind deserted Calpe bay on the final day of the ISAF Grade 1 International Women Match Race Criterium, giving overall victory to round robin winner Silke HAHLBROCK.
During the last racing day in Calpe the wind was conspicuous by its absence. The competitors sailed to the racing area at 13:00 but the lack of wind prevented any racing. By 15:00 the competitors were back in the club and at 17:30 racing was abandoned for the day.
With no knockout stages, the overall results were based on the round robin scores from the first three racing days. This gave overall victory to Silke HAHLBROCK
(GER), with world #1 Claire LEROY
(FRA) in second and Sabrina GURIOLI
