SA clean up at Hobie Multi World Championships 2015 - Lake Garda Italy

There were South African flags all round at the final presentation of the Hobie Tiger World Championships as SA sailors claimed a clean sweep of the podium places.

For the first time in history, it was a South African 1, 2, 3 as father and son team William and Douglas Edwards from Plettenburg Bay claimed the gold, another Plett father and son team Blaine and Peter-Blaine Dodds the silver and Capetonians Sean Ferry and Lee Hawkins the bronze at Lake Garda, Italy last weekend.

The South Africans had dominated proceedings throughout the four-day event and were looking to seal their clean sweep on the final day of sailing. However, a lack of wind meant no sailing could take place and their top-three places were left intact.

Adding to the accolades, Blaine Dodds also walked away with the Hobie 14 world title.

South Africans have achieved much international success in Hobie sailing over the years. the latest honours bring the world title tally up to 25, since the first back in 1978.

"This is an outstanding result for South African sailing and we congratulate the Edwards and Dodds teams and Sean and Lee on making the country proud" said SA sailing chairman Peter Hall.

"We simply could not have dreamed of a better result, which just goes to show, South Africans certainly know what they are doing when it comes to hobie sailing," added Hall.
