A feature of this year's ICF Ocean Racing World Championships in Hong Kong was the radically improved live coverage - the streaming video feed combined with TracTrac live tracking kept a worldwide audience enthralled.  Canoe Planet posted a bunch of great post-race interviews on their Facebook page, which give fascinating insights from the athletes' point of view...  

Cory Hill - Overall Men's Champion

He's not known as Cory "Chill" Hill for nothing!  This cool customer lead the race from start to finish, never looking anything but commanding.


Hayley Nixon - Overall Women's Champion

Great interview with a very happy Hayley Nixon, who took her first ICF Ocean Racing World Championship title.


Kenny Rice - U23 Men's Gold

Kenny Rice (RSA) overcame a poor start and enjoyed an astonishing downwind section to finish in fourth place overall, beating his brother Sean and taking the U23 title.  This makes three out of four victories in the sibling rivalry stakes this year!


Linnea Stensils - U23 Women's Gold

Gold for Sweden - third time out for Linnea and she took the U23 title...  Not bad going.  


Oscar Jones - U18 Gold

Looks as though the future of Australian surfski is in good hands with this youngster, who beat Frenchman Hector Henot by over two minutes to take the U18 title. 


Sabina Lawrie

South African Sabina returns from Hong Kong to take her final exams at school...!
