Erin Maxwell and Isabella Kinsolving from the USA win women's 470 World Championship.

Second were Giula Conti and Giovanna Micol of Italy and in third Elise Rechichi and Tessa Parkinson of Australia.

Britain's Christina Bassadone and Saskia Clark finished seventh overall.

Conditions for the top 10 double points medal race were perfect today for the lightweight Aussie combination, who overnight trailed triple world champions Marcelien de Koning and Lobke Berkhout (NED) by just one point.

In 7-10 knot shifty winds, Rechichi and Parkinson sailed a near tactically perfect race to set themselves up for a podium finish. Knowing they had to beat the Dutch girls to have any chance of a bronze medal, they kept them in sight for the entire race.

Italy's Conti and Micol managed to win the medal race to consolidate the silver medal position, with Maxwell and Kinsolving finishing fourth, Rechichi and Parkinson fifth and de Koning/Berkhout second last in the 10 boat fleet.
