Racing on Kaløvig Bay at the 29er World Championships was perfect today with sunny skies and 8-15 knots. ISAF Youth World champions Lucas Rual and Emile Amoros (FRA) can now add the title of 29er World Champions to their list of accolades.

Rual and Amoros put a little fear into their supporters as they began the day with a 32nd, but kicked it into gear and followed up with a 10-2 to win the title by 27 points over Markus Somerville and Jack Simpson of New Zealand.

Spaniards Marti Llena and Oriol Mahiques also sailed two top finishing races to move them ahead of the Australians who had been holding down the top few positions throughout the week. Ragna and Maia Agerup of Norway were the top finishing all female team and Rual and Amoros also were top youth team.

Winners of the silver fleet: Clementine Mindren and Elitte Ferroniere (FRA); Bronze fleet: Douglas Campbell and Cameron Seagreen (AUS) and Emerald fleet: Var Osborg and Eric Collet (NOR).

Sailing Aarhus and Kaløvig Sailing Club were excellent hosts throughout the week providing a fantastic venue for sailors and spectators alike. Twenty-five nations representing all continents with 213 entries competed in this highly competitive fleet.

The 29er Class will now look toward Kingston, Ontario, Canada for the 2014 World Championship.
