Jan Saugmann and Morten Ramsbaek (DEN) have won Race 8 and are in an unbeatable position for the 2007 SAP World Championship with one race left to sail.

The second last race in the 2007 SAP 505 Worlds started this afternoon in a gentle 6-8 knot south westerly, at a heading of 215, the shorter course 2 was signalled.

The gate boat was Queenslander Kevin Cameron who was required to run the line on port tack. If the right hand side of the course was favoured, he would be well placed at the top mark, otherwise not. Not was the answer, Cameron was 18th at the top mark.

Leading the fleet were the Super Danes, already leading the series, Jan Saugmann and Morten Ramsbaek (DEN) who were two lengths ahead of Howie Hamlin (USA), the 2007 Australian 505 champion Michael Quirk, with Malcolm Higgins (AUS) a few seconds back.

Race 5 winner Ebbe Rosen (SWE) was sixth, just a second ahead of Sandy Higgins (AUS/SA). Hasso Plattner (GER) was 15th and was fast to hoist his SAP spinnaker.

At the bottom mark, Michael Quirk had sailed through Hamlin into second place. Hamlin was fighting to stay ahead of Martin Goerge (GER).

At the top mark for the second time Saugmann led from Quirk, who was not losing contact, again right on his stern.

Hamlin was third, about three boat lengths back. Down the run for the second time, the breeze was steady around 8-10 knots, still from 215, no changes in the top five. This might be Mal Higgins, (Sandy's older brother) best ever race, he is steady in fourth, but only a length ahead of Rosen.

Stamping their authority on the 2007 World Championship Jan Saugmann and Morten Ramsbaek (DEN) got the gun in race 8. They finished ahead of Michael Quirk (AUS), Howie Hamlin (USA), Ebbe Rosen (SWE) and Ian Pinnell (GBR).

The 2005 Australian 505 champion Phil Gray (AUS) looks to have finished sixth ahead of Mal Higgins (AUS/SA) with Sandy Higgins (AUS/SA) next.

In winning Race 8, Saugmann and Ramsbaek have won the 2007 World Championship with a race to spare. The main interest in tomorrow's final race will be for the other podium places, with three crews covered by just two points, and with a fourth easily able to stage an upset.
