Chris Law, who announced an emotional retirement from yacht racing after a disappointing end to his perfomance in this year's Admiral's Cup, has apparently had a change of heart, accepting an invitation to compete this week in the Bermuda Gold Cup match race series.

In Majorca, the Corel 45 World Championship went to Bertrand Pace and Thierry Peponnet in Faster K-Yote on a tie-break with George Andreadis' Atalanti X. David McLean's Babbalaas, skippered by Eddie Warden Owen, was top placed of the three British boats in fourth.
