A great series of consistent scores gave Brad a convincing victory over a weeks hard racing in Foster City. This 2nd IOM Worlds victory for Brad can now be added to the M Worlds he won last year and the IOM Europeans he took at Lake Garda. Not a bad haul eh………..

Brad was pushed all the way by Peter Stollery who showed that he is the skipper for the big event, even more special given that he was sailing the same boat as he won the 2011 Worlds with.

Rob Walsh was in contention most of the week but a fourth discard was favourable to those around him and pushed him down the leaderboard.

Others had a mixed week, with good and bad results but even those who maybe didn’t get the result they had hoped for did us proud.

Well done to Brad, Peter and all the GBR skippers for showing the rest of the world how strong the GBR racing scene us and giving us all something to aspire to.

Brad Gibson-1st

Peter Stollery- 2nd
