The final 2 races were sailed in a strong and shifting northerly. In race one the fleet split with the Torbole side paying and big gains and losses downwind in the bands of pressure. Nick Craig won, with Mario Rabbo second and Tomai Balazs 3rd.

The final race was a show down for the Gold Cup between Nick and Mario. At a shortened finish Tamas Szamody (HUN) was first with Mario second and Nick 3rd. This left Mario and Nick equal on points with Mario winning the Gold Cup on countback. Tamas moved up to 4th overall and Chris Sallis rounded out the top 5 and won the Masters trophy.

With entries from 6 nations and close racing throughout the fleet the 2016 Gold cup was a memorable event with everyone looking forward to meeting again in Hungary next May
