The second FAREAST 28R World Championship came to an end after four days of racing at the beautiful venue of Fuxian Lake, Yunnan, China. Located on 1,750m above sea level, this fresh water lake provided some challenging conditions during the 11 races.

The first days started off in light conditions, but during the last two days some nice breeze picked up with gust up to 20 knots and sunny weather, which turned this second FAREAST 28R World Championship into a success!

With one race to go, it was still an open race, especially between second and third place; Team Standard Insurance (PHI 348) and Wilfersail Racing Team (NED 1) were both on 27 points.

But it was Team Magic from South Africa, skippered by Malcolm Hall, that showed everyone how it's done. With five wins out of 11, they sailed with big confidence and with minor errors during the entire championship.

Second place went to Ridgely Ballardes - Team Standard Insurance (PHI 348), with Martin Hingst - Wilfersail Racing Team (NED 1) finishing third.

Three continents in the top three positions; that's a real World Championship!

Team Magic members and the FAREAST 28R 2018 World Champions are: Malcolm Buchanan, Roger Beresford, Asenathi Jim, Alex Burger, Alexander Ham and Calvin Luke.
