isaf swwIt was a light wind, big wave finish at ISAF Sailing World Cup Qingdao as the medallists were decided across the six fleets competing on the waters of the Beijing 2008 Olympic Sailing Competition.

Byron Kokkalanis (GRE) had wrapped up gold in the Men’s RS:X the day prior but intriguing battles for gold across the remaining fleets played out in a tense day of competition.

The stakes were high with Qingdao medals on the line, a share of the prize money and invitation places at stake for the ISAF Sailing World Cup Final set to be held at the end of November in Abu Dhabi, United Arab Emirates.
