Gillard and Anderton dominated the early stages of the championship, winning the first five races.

But then Sophie Weguelin and Eilidh McIntyre, of the British 470 Olympic squad, broke the spell winning races 6 and 7.

Gillard and Anderton were back winning race 8, then on the final day Christian Birrell and Vyv Townend grabbed a win and then Matt Burge and Richard Wagstaff took the final race.

Those race wins put Birrell and Townend into second overall and in third Burge and Wagstaff, but made no difference to the champions - Tom Gillard and Richard Anderton.
