The last two days of racing for the 2019 Flying Dutchman World Championships wrapped up on Thursday. Three races were sailed over the last two days of the regatta.

Thursday's start was brought forward to 11am due to forecast higher winds in the afternoon. The race ended up being one of the lighter wind races sailed in shifting 8 10 knot breezes.

Szabolcs Majthenyi and András Domokos (HUN) confirmed their status as the world's best Flying Dutchman sailors when they won their 13th World title in Nelson

The results in the last three races were a benefit for the top three boats. HUN 70 had two firsts and a second, GER 88 a third, second and first, and NED 26 a second, third and fourth.

HUN 70 (Szabolcs Majthenyi and András Domokos) were declared overall World Champions for 2019 with a total score of 9 points. Their counting scores included five firsts and two seconds. Another two seconds were their discarded scores. GER 88 (Kay-Uwe Lüdtke and Kai Schäfers) were second overall with a score of 13 points with NED 26 (Enno Kramer and Ard Geelkerken) third on 19 points.

The top three boats dominated the event with none of them finishing lower than fifth in any race.

Top New Zealander was America based Paul Scoffin in seventh place.

With the exception of race one where the wind built from 10 20 knots shortly after the start races were sailed in perfect Nelson sea breeze conditions of 8 14 knots with at times relatively large waves. Conditions were perfect for the Flying Dutchman which enjoyed the steady upwind sailing and long surfing rides down wind.

The fleet was very competitive throughout with close battles for every place in the 41 boat fleet.

A total of 10 countries were represented.
