Thank you to all the Finn sailors that took the time and made the effort to sail at Torbole 2016, the largest Finn event in history. It was great to see so many of you from all corners of the world. Thank you to Team Fantastica for your sponsorship and congratulations to our new champion Rafa Trujillo. I hope you all had a safe journey home and look forward to doing this again in Barbados 2017.
Finn Masters President
Whatever the outcome of the final races at the Finn World Masters in Torbole, everyone was a winner with a spectacular final day of sailing. Rafael Trujillo (ESP) won his first Masters title after a great comeback in the medal race to take the win from defending champion Vladimir Krutskikh (RUS) and six times winner Michael Maier (CZE).
For the first time ever, all ten sailors entering the medal race at the Finn World Masters in Torbole have a chance of walking away with the title. With all racing cancelled on Thursday, the points difference from first to tenth is just 14, so theoretically they all have a chance of lifting the title.
Nothing can separate the top two sailors at the Finn World Masters in Torbole. Rafa Trujillo (ESP) and Vladimir Krukskikh (RUS) continue to collect race wins and now have six apiece with two races to go. Mike Maier (CZE) stays in third after a third and first.
