Olympic Classes World Championships 2018 - Aarhus DEN - Final results

The Quadrennial World Sailing Olympic Classes World Championship 2018 in Aarhus DEN was concluded yesterday with the RS:X windsurfer and Nacra-17 Medal Races sailed in slackening winds. The RS:X men windsurfers sailed their Medal Race in a 10kn breeze, for the RS:X women, the wind dropped to about 5kn, and the Nacra-17 Race had to be cancelled, as the wind disappeared completely.
Dorian Van Rijsselberghe NED in the RS:X men windsurfers was - as in his two Olympic victories 2012 and 2016 - the premature winner before the last race. Nevertheless, he showed his class as 3rd in the Medal Race once more. Silver went to his trainings partner Kiran Badloe NED. Louis Giard FRA earned Bronze.
In the RS:X women as well, the Gold Medal was Dutch prematurely. Lilian De Geus NED finished as World Champion with huge 30 points advantage on the Olympic Champion Charline Picon FRA. The French athlete, in her comeback after a pause while having a baby, demonstrated, that she is back on top. Bronze went to Yunxiu Lu CHN.
The Medal Race of the Nacra17 could not be run due to lack of sufficient wind. Too bad, as the small points' gaps would have guaranteed exciting battles. Ruggero Tita/Caterina Banti ITA, dominators of the season, crowned their year with the Worlds title. On rank 2, only one point behind, followed the two-times 49er Olympic Medallist Nathan Outteridge AUS (with his sister Haylee Outteridge AUS as crewt) in his first Nacra-Saison. Bronze went to the Olympic Champion Santiago Lange/Cecilia Carranza ARG.
