The 2019 Star World Championship hosted by Yacht Club Costa Smeralda kicked off on the 17th of June with 63 teams at the start line in the beautiful Porto Cervo, Italy. Doyle Star customers put on a spectacular performance this year with wins in the top spots, including 1st, 2nd* and 3rd* overall.

Mateusz Kusznierewicz and Bruno Prada came out on top, winning the Star World Championship title. Kusznierewicz was Star Class World Champion in 2008 so this is his second title while Bruno Prada celebrates his record fifth Star Worlds tile.

Mateusz Kusznierewicz comments on the win,

"We are really happy to have won this Championship, it's almost incredible when I think that this is the first time I have raced with Bruno (Prada). Our aim was to give it our all and never give up and that's what we did. From start to finish, even when we were behind in the fleet we always managed to recover and finish well. We knew that every result counted and this is a sweet taste of success for us."
