18ft Skiff World Championship for the Mark Foy Trophy - Overall

by Tom Hill 4 Jun 2015 14:57 BST 30 May - 3 June 2015

The final day of the Mark Foy was held on an incredibly hot day, with most teams taking in the last of the warm conditions.

Delonghi made the bold decision to launch on their big rig, being the only boat to do so. After some congestion getting off the beach, little prep was allowed before the first race was started. As the breeze built, the bigger rig of Delonghi started to slow upwind compared the efficient smaller rigs on the rest of the fleet.

However, with a huge sail area downwind, they were able to sail a much deeper course. Pica and Black Dog both had to retire in the first race due to kit failure, setting Delonghi up for a possible jump into second place. Howie Hamlin managed to seal his 7th bullet of the week giving Harken the championship.

The final race saw the rest of the podium decided, with the podium boats only being tied by a few points. Delonghi stuck to the lighter side of the course providing lifts and relief from the building breeze. Even with the monstrous power downwind, Delonghi couldn't pass Black Dog who finished 3rd to seal an overall second place in the regatta. Pica couldn't keep in front of Delonghi and surrendered their podium place to leave Delonghi finishing in 3rd place overall.

The fleet will return to Torbole next year for their European championships with many teams eager to come back and make the most of the guaranteed sun and wind that Lake Garda has to offer.
