Yesterday was a great day of competition in Team Racing Finals at the 2018 Optimist World Championship. A medium breeze of 10 to 12 knots allowed the teams to battle it out until the end.

There were great match-ups and performances for Teams THA, ITA, ESP, USA, ISR, ARG and many more with the first three prevaling. Thailand and Italy managed to moved to the final that took place in light wind. Big advantage for the Thailand Team which sailed great throughout the series and deserved to win the valuable title leaving the Italian Team to second place and Spain as the second runner-up.

Congratulations to all the teams for the great performance and the spectacular sailing they presented to everyone, in a venue so close to the spectators.

A great end to Team Racing competition brings the begininng of a great final series of fleet racing today.
