The race results before the start of the last race were close with it all to play for going into the 9th and final race. KELLNER/SCHOELER were the overnight leaders and had a solid buffer – and only needed to finish within 14 places of SAUGMANN/GORGE to take the title.
With a clear start PINNELL/MITCHELL took the early lead and extended, KELLER/SCHOELER however didn’t start as well being trapped out on the un-favoured left hand side of the course. To add insult to injury, KELLER/SCHOELER lost their spinnaker gear over the front of the boat at the first leeward mark which dramatically slowed the team down, and saw them relegated to 100+ at the next windward mark.
SAUGMANN/GORGE continued to extend and sailed a consistent race finishing in 3rd position with BOJSEN-MOLLER/BOJSEN-MOLLER in 2nd position and PINNELL/MITCHELL winning the race by a 100m margin. KELLER/SCHOELER finished outside the top 50 to hand the 2012 SAP 5O5 World Championships to DEN 8964, Jan Saugmann and Martin Gorge.
