Three teams fighted in the Skud-18 for Silver and Bronze, as Daniel Fitzgibbon/Liesl Tesch AUS were the premature winners already. Winning the last race was not good enough for Monika Gibes/Piotr Chichoki POL to climb on the podium. With a one point's backlog on Alexandra Rickham/Niki Birrell GBR, they had to content themselves with the 4th place. Silver went to John McRoberts/Jackie Gay CAN. Behind the premature Sonar Champion Colin Harrison AUS and his team, Silver and Bronze went to Alphonsus Doerr USA and Paul Tingley CAN.
