Another world championship trophy for Simon Payne. Well done!
This victory is two years after Weymouth, where prior to the actual regatta the venue was touted as a probable light air regatta and Si's hopes were riding as high as he was in the light stuff.
Dubai was also eighteen months after the US Nationals in the Gorge where Simon was to only overseas competitor to compete (he finished second) in preparation for last year's worlds.
This year's victory is well deserved to someone who's put in a consistent effort over a number of years, despite injury and age. Well done, Si, your fellow competitors salute you!
