World Match Racing Championship title

1 AV 4

Ian Williams of Bahrain Team Pindar, match racing skipper extraordinaire, has retained his world title taking out the 2008 ISAF Match Racing World Championship trophy.

Williams led the championship point score with 92 points going into the final event of the World Match Racing Tour. His nearest rivals for the title, Sébastien Col and Mathieu Richard, had to make it to through the quarter finals of the Monsoon Cup to stay in the hunt for the championship trophy.

The Monsoon Cup is the final event in the World Match Racing Tour and was the deciding event in the 2008 ISAF World Match Racing Championship.

Both Col and Richard were knocked out of the quarter finals leaving the pathway open for Williams to storm through and hold onto the coveted World Championship trophy.

In the final event of the Tour, the 2008 Monsoon Cup, Williams was effectively handed the World Championship title after Col lost his last quarter final match against Peter Gilmour after a technical protest.
