Tobias Schadewaldt and Hannes Baumann's Kieler-Woche victory leapfrogged
them into third place in the 49er Standings. But Nathan Outteridge and Iain
Jensen (AUS) take the 49er title after another successful year. Manu Dyen and
Stephane Christidis (FRA) finish second.
With none of the leading sailors competing in the Laser Radial, Alison Young (GBR) takes the title after a fantastic year followed by Delta Lloyd Regatta winner Krystal Weir and Sail Melbourne, US SAILING's Rolex Miami OCR and Semaine Olympique Francaise winner Lijia Xu (CHN).
Mathew Belcher and Malcolm Page (AUS) take the Men's 470 title for the third year running whilst Amanda Clark and Sarah Lihan (USA) end the World Cup season at the top of the Women's Standings. Mat Belcher's German wife Rike was second in the women's standings with her helm Kathrin Kadelbach, while Elise Rechichi and Belinda Stowell finished seventh.
In the 2.4mR Great Britain's Helena Lucas had done enough to seal the title ahead of Kieler-Woche and only a regatta victory by two sailors would have shifted Megan Pascoe (GBR) from second spot. In the end Pascoe was left undisturbed and Paul Tingley's (CAN) fourth place in Kiel lifted him above Thierry Schmitter (NED) to round off the podium. In the Skud Australia's Dan Fitzgibbon and Liesl Tesch finished second behind Alexandra Rickham and Niki Birrell of GBR.
Star sailing commences on 21-24 June but with the entry list only featuring Xavier Rohart and Pierre-Alexis Ponsot (FRA) the French pair have taken the Star title. Fredrik Loof and Max Salminen (SWE) and Robert Scheidt and Bruno Prada (BRA) finish in second and third.
No Men's or Women's RS:X racing took place in Kiel therefore the final Standings were determined from the results of the previous six regattas.
Coming out on top in the Men's RS:X was Sebastian Wang-Hansen (NOR) followed by Dorian Van Rijsselberge (NED) and Julien Bontemps (FRA). Flavia Tartaglini's two podium finishes were enough to give her the Women's RS:X title whilst Norway are in the top three again as Jannicke Stalstrom picks up silver. Jessica Crisp (AUS) settles for third.
Anna Tunnicliffe (USA) had sealed the Women's Match Racing title at Skandia Sail for Gold, the final World Cup regatta featuring Women's Match Racing. Olivia Price (AUS) clinched silver after her victory in Weymouth and Lucy Macgregor (GBR) finished in the final podium spot.
