Australia’s Matt Bugg was the clear winner in the 2.4mR class of the Sail Melbourne competition of the ISAF Sailing World Cup, which took place from 6-12 November.
Having come first in nine out of 10 races, he won gold with an 11 point lead on teammates Greg Hyde, who took silver, and Michael Leydon in third place.
