As a consequence of the Swiss National Bank' decision to no longer protect the Swiss Franc against the devaluating €uro, the value of the Swiss currency has exploded and the Foreign Exchange Company Alpari (UK) Limited, Tour title sponsor since 2012, was forced to enter into insolvency.
The World Match Racing Tour is continuing as scheduled with the Final in Malaysia in early February, promising an exciting finish between the defending champion Taylor Canfield ISV and the actual Tour leader Ian Williams GBR. The 2015 calendar of events, including two new official stages, will shortly be announced. Interest contacts from potential global partners to sponsor the coming season have already been received.

The fresh breeze exceeding 30 kn did not allow to sail the final race of the 14-footer World Championship in Geelong.

But the fight for Silver and Bronze has been dropped so that Ben McGrane/James Hughes GBR remained 2nd ahead of Brad Devine /Ian Furlong AUS. The results and the final report.
