A blue, blue sky overhead and sparkling waters for the final day of racing here in Castle Bay Karatsu. Three World Championhip titles will be decided and the pressure is on.
Everything is still at stake, with the closing two races set to be contested in more breeze than originally forecast. Currently around 14 knots on the race track, giving lots of opportunities to switch the line-up.
Teams representing thirteen nations currently sit inside the leaderboard top ten across the three World Championship fleets - what better showcase of the depth of talent of the world’s most popular two-person youth dinghy.
