More than 1,100 sailors from 59 nations raced at the final ISAF Sailing World Cup regatta of the 2013-2014 series and were treated to exceptional race action. Medals across the Olympic events were decided on the final day with a 10-12 knot westerly breeze on flat water bringing a superb week to an end.
