Recall that before the last racing day, the US-Russian crew was third, behind the leaders by three points. All had to decide the last two races.

In the first of them, Lawrence and Selivanov came second, and in the final, already shortly before the finish, several boats managed to get around at once – and this reinforced their overall victory. In total, they have 19 points (with one outlier), parishes 1 – 2 – (12) – 8 -2 – 6.

“These were wonderful days,” said Luke Lawrence after the awards ceremony. “We worked very well together and we enjoyed it a lot!”

The silver of the championship was also won by an international crew – the American Thomas Hornos and the Brazilian Pedro Truche (winner of the Star Sailors League-2018 final)! – 22 points, the parishes 7 – 1 – (7) – 5 – 7 – 2.

And finally, in third place are the Irish Robert and Peter O’Leary – 26 points, the parishes 3–4 – (16) – 12–6 – 1.

Recall that in the first junior (up to 30 years) World Championship in the class of "Star" 36 crews took part.
