After a shaky start to the regatta 2008 champions, the French BELLET brothers, stormed back in the stronger winds which have typified second half of the series. However, they left their charge just a little too late and although they won the final race, the Aussies came in third to claim gold. Silver went to France, with Italians Francesco PORRO and Luca MARSAGLIA completing the podium

Congratulations  Jason & Lisa!
