by ILCA 28 May 22:42 PDT 23-28 May 2022

Jean-Baptiste Bernaz from France is crowned champion

The first race of the day brought a little drama when the event leader Jean-Baptiste Bernaz (FRA) got a Black flag, and Pavlos Kontides (CYP) finished fifth, which lifted him to a second overall place, with just 12 points behind Jean-Baptiste. By finishing 14th place, Thomas Saunders (NZL) fell to third position, only 5 points ahead of Tonci Stipanovic (CRO).

The race win went to Alessio Spadoni from Italy who was holding currently 15th position before the last race. Filip Jurišic (CRO) finished second and Clemente Seguel Lacamara (CHI) in third place.

According to the Notice of Race the last possible Warning signal at 1500 made it impossible for the race committee to give to the Silver fleet a second race, so they finished the championship with eleven races sailed total.

However, the Gold fleet still managed to get their last race started in time and Michael Beckett (GBR) made his best race during the regatta by winning that race. Filip Jurišic (CRO) finished second, which moved him up to the third overall position; Joel Rodriquez Perez (ESP) finished third.

Jean-Baptiste Bernaz (FRA) by finishing 7th in the last race secured his position he held almost the whole regatta and became a new ILCA 7 World Champion. Pavlos Kontides (CYP) took a Silver and Filip Jurišic (CRO) Bronze.

It is the first time that the ILCA 7 Men's World Champion title goes to France! Congratulations!
