Doreste claims Finn World Masters

1988 Olympic Finn gold medalist, José Luis Doreste, from Spain, wins 2018 Finn World Masters at El Balís, Spain

After a 30 year gap it would seem Doreste has lost none of his Finn skills. He also picked up the Grand Grand Masters title.

Antonio Poncell, from Chile, sailed the best day to take second and Grand Masters winner, while Giacomo Giovanelli, from Italy did just enough for third, and was the first Master.

The largest cheer as always went to the Legends and Super Legends with a record breaking entry.

Super Legend Gus Miller

After a recount, Friedrich Müller, from Germany, won the Legends category for the third time, while Gus Miller, from the USA, won the Super Legends.

Gathering 45 Legends on stage was not only an emotional moment for everyone, but proof that Finn sailing can be a sport for life.
