RS:X - Ashley wins worlds, silver for Kendall, Tobin 7th Tom Ashley was crowned RS:X Men’s World Champion last Saturday after a superb regatta sailed on home waters in front of friends and family. It is a career highlight to date for the 23 year old from Devonport who won World Championship silver in 2006. Ashley will now turn his focus to the Olympic Games which start just seven months from now. Barbara Kendall was edged out on the final day by old rival and friend Alessandra Sensini of Italy. Sitting on equal points going into the medal race it was all on between Sensini and local legend Barbara Kendall for the Women’s world title. The Italian prevailed winning the medal race by a twelve second margin over Kendall who was in hot pursuit after getting out to a poor start. Just two points separated the old rivals at the conclusion of the regatta and Sensini rounded out the championship with five wins from ten races. Jon Paul Tobin sailed solidly throughout the regatta and topped it off with a strong medal race on Saturday in which he crossed the line in third place. Tobin finished in 7th place overall. * High Performance Coach Wanted: Boardsailing * Yachting New Zealand is the National body for competitive and recreational sailing in New Zealand.
