The World Championship 2015 of the three Paralympic Classes in Melbourne ended this morning with the last race.
As expected, the podium of the 2.4m keelboats, the largest fleet with 48 boats, remained unchanged considering the big points' gaps. Damien Séguin FRA collected another Gold Medal, Silver went to Heiko Kröger GER and Matt Bugg AUS defended by a small margin Bronze against the strong English duo Helena Lucas GBR and Megan Pascoe GBR. In the Skuds-18, Daniel Fitzgibbon/Liesl Tesch AUS were also the winners of the last heat and are the supreme World Champions. Alexandra Rickham/Niki Birrell GBR earned Silver, Marco Gualandris/Marta Zanetti ITA Bronze. Exciting was the final race in the Sonars: John Robertson/Hannah Stodel/Steve Thomas GBR defended their first place against Colin Harrison/Jonathan Harris/Russell Boaden GBR by only one points. Aleksander Wang-Hansen/Marie Solberg/Per Kristiansen NOR are 3rd.

The results of the best North Americans:
- 2.4m: Dee Smith USA 6th, Bruce Millar CAN 11th
