International Moth World Championship
Les Sables d'Olonne

The weather forecast for the final day of the championship wasn't that good. Only 5 to 10 knots wind (10 dying to 5, actually). The fleet managed to sail two races anyway.
In the first race, there was an International podium with Rohan VEAL (AUS) finishing first in front of Tim STEINLEIN (GER) and Martin HARRISON (GBR). Mark Thorpe finished fifth, followed by Yumiko SHIGE and Les THORPE, seventh out of 35 boats finishing the race.

Yumiko SHIGE had her best results at end of the regatta, finishing third in race 10 behind Sven KLOPPENBURG and Mark THORPE. Colin NEWMAN, the elderly of this Championship, finished 17 out of 33 boats.

Mark has won the World Championship, but there's some discussion going about the second place and third place.
