The SAP505WorldChampionship2018 is over. But the excitement possibly not yet. And then, there's Australia to look forward to. Last Friday, during the Closing Ceremony Lutz Stengel and Holger Jess have officially become the 505 Class World Champions 2018.

The last two days of racing were certainly good ones. Good in the sense of a vast range of possibilities. Some were more than happy with 10 knots, others enjoyed the challenge of some choppy waves. There were moments of glory sliding and some new holes in the boats, broken helms or even a mast. But it was all worth it. The last five races - three on Thursday and two on Friday, still with beautiful sun and medium-strength wind ended up with a Birthday party of Michał Olko, one of the organizers, on Thursday and the grand Closing Ceremony on Friday when we officially called it a day. Lutz Stengel and Holger Jess - the 505 Class World Champions 2018 have received the beautiful blue globe - the symbol of the best of the best.

With cheers, laughter and some good music we bade goodbye to the 505 sailors and welcomed Australia as the host of the 505Worlds2019, coming soon indeed!

So, get ready for Jan, 2019!
