The Hobie 16 Open World Championships concluded Saturday with no further racing possible.
Yamil Saba and Gonzalo Cendra (VEN) are the 2019 Hobie 16 World Champions finishing one point ahead of Nicolaj Bjornholt and Michelle Jensen (DEN), with and Gav Colby and Worst News (AUS) in third.
British teams took 3rd and 4th in the Youth event.
Racing on the final day at Captiva Island, Florida, was abandoned due to high winds combined with an unsafe sea state.
After 16 days of sailing and seven events, just two days were ultimately lost due to weather as Captiva Island delivered a full mix of conditions in a beautiful tropical venue.
