The final decision for the Worlds title was made yesterday in the last race sailed in a 8 to 12 kn breeze the Bay of Hyères. The defending champions Robert Scheidt/Bruno Prada BRA controlled their unique opponents for the title, the Olympic Champions Ian Percy/Andrew Simpson GBR, uncompromisingly, and sailed them down the fleet. The Brazilians earned herewith his third Starboat Worlds title. The Bronze medal went to Michael Hestbaek/Claus Olesen DEN, who came back to the Star last November only, and mastered the difficult conditions at the event perfectly. O'Leary/Burrows IRL and Lööf/Salminen SWE, two more favorites for Olympic medals, follow on the ranks 4 and 5.
