Max Salminen på gång - 4a i 2015 ISAF Sailing World Cup Weymouth & Portland

Even though he finished in last place in the medal race, Giles Scott (GBR) did enough to win the Finn gold medal at the ISAF Sailing World Cup Weymouth & Portland in a medal race that had everything. Josh Junior (NZL) just managed to save the silver after being the victim of Scott's attentions while Andrew Murdoch (NZL) also saved the bronze.

The race win went to Jonathan Lobert FRA), just as it did three years ago in the Olympics, but this time there was no bronze medal waiting at the finish line. Jake Lilley (AUS) led round the top mark and held on to second, while Max Salminen (SWE) continued his good form with a third place to end up fourth overall. After a delayed start because the early wind died, it reappeared from the south-west. It was only 5-7 knots but was enough to produce a thrilling conclusion to one of the closest regattas this year.
