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.
Risk management was the deciding factor on the second day of the Finn World Masters in Torbole as local knowledge and Garda geometry meant that there were many changes in position through the four groups as the 355 Finns battled against strong, cold and remarkably shifty winds all day. Rafael Trujillo (ESP), Vladimir Krutskikh (RUS) and Mike Maier (CZE) all recorded a perfect score with two race wins each, while other race wins went to Harles Liiv (EST) and Yuri Tokovoi (UKR).
