Shaw and Partners Race Team's Michael Booth claims world distance title News03 Dec 2018

Michael Booth, a member of the Shaw and Partners Race Team, took out his 2nd Distance Title yesterday in the ISA World Championships held in Wanning, China.

 

Despite not having the ‘ideal’ race preparation on his side, Booth was determined to make a good impression over in China and he certainly did not disappoint.

 

“From the first stroke I knew I felt strong. I felt like I had regained my form and if I was to do everything right, I had a great chance and a great opportunity to win”.

 

Michael Booth had previously won the ISA in 2016 and after a poor performance last year due to illness, was determined to come back stronger than ever this year with the goal of winning and racing his best and winning back the championship title.

 

The race presented competitors with some challenging conditions; pouring rain and low visibility in the warm up setting the mood for the race. On the second lap Booth took off in the downwind section gaining a 40 second lead and didn’t look back. Booth held his composure in the last lap into the headwind and powered to the finish. He won back his title ahead of last year’s winner Bruno Hasulyo of Hungary and Vinnicius Martins of Brazil.

 

Booth’s win added to the overall Australian team winning the ISA Championships for 2018.
