SB20 Worlds - Final day turn-over for Sportboatworld.com

When I looked at the final set of SB20 World's results I did a double-take . . . Sportsboatworld.com ? The same three men in a boat that I had last mentioned in passing as fifth overall.We'll drink to that!-

What had happened to the four other boats and eleven points that stood between them and the World title?

Long time leader, Australia's Export Roo of Michael Cooper had a lead of eleven points, but while Messrs Jerry Hill, Geoff Carveth and Richard Lovering were winning the final race, the Aussies could only manage a 14th, more than enough to throw-away the title.

But there were others who could have stepped up to take their place . . .

Give Me Five of Robin Follin of France only managed a 16, Xcellent of John Pollard a 17, and the Irish boat Sin Bin of Michael O'Connor easily their worse score of the week, a 29.

And joining Sportsboatworld.com at the front of race 5 were:

Itparfume of Borys Shvets, Anatolii Petrov, Ivan Pavlusik and Anna Kyselova in second (5th overall) and in third Sponge Bob of Alain Waha, Joshua Waha, Ben Childerly and Isabel Waha (39th overall).

Nations Cup: 1st GBR - Sportsboatworld.com, Xcellent and Marvel.
