Finns at ISAF Sailing World Cup Miami

Extract IFA

Top 10 all used North Sails.

Caleb Paine (USA) rounded off an exceptional week's sailing by winning the enthralling Finn medal race at the ISAF Sailing World Cup Miami to take the gold medal from London 2012 Olympians Greg Douglas (CAN) and Jorge Zarif (BRA).

Paine had led from the first day and it never really looked as if he was heading for any other result. Five race wins from the 11 race series in fantastic sailing conditions gives him his second ISAF World Cup event win, after taking the Delta Lloyd Regatta last year. Runner-up Douglas had picked up an OCS in race three that left him struggling to make the podium, but he turned it around in the second half of the week with a string of top threes, including two race wins. Bronze medalist Jorge Zarif also sailed a great week after a conservative start and proved very fast on the downwinds.
