The 2019 World titles in Ireland have been completed, with the best of the West Australian boats (Firefly from RFBYC) finishing in 4th place. The other West Aussies competing in the 72-boat fleet finished 21st (Glamour Buoys, also from RFBYC), 26th (Ffast Lane 4 from SoPYC), 38th (Final Fifteen Says She! from SoPYC - including an excellent 4th in the last race) and 45th (Aussie Way from SoPYC). The top three places were all filled by English boats, with Graham Vials and Chris Turner from Derwent Reservoir Sailing Club taking out their fourth World Title, having previously won in 2011, 2013 and 2015 before taking a break in 2017.
