Giles Scott (GBR) and Pieter-Jan Postma (NED) were the top two going into the Medal races in the Finn class at the ISAF World Sailing Cup, Palma regatta.

Two short medal races were sailed to trial a new scoring and race format for this event, which will potentially be used in the Rio Olympics in 2016.

The Dutchman took the first advantage beating Scott in the first medal race to narrow Scott's lead to just one point. Scott however then used match racing tactics at the start of the final race to get the better of Postma to achieve 3rd place to Postma's 5th, giving him the overall win by just one place.

Vasilij Zbogar of Slovenia counted the best other scorings of the day to move up one place and take bronze medal.

Gold, Silver & Bronze all went to North powered boats.
