In the final of the rapier and dagger, after a good 3 minutes of sudden death overtime, Rob pipped me to avenge the result of the WWOC final. Git. The other 2 semifinalists were last year's finalists, Hans and Thibault, who both fought brilliantly as we've come to expect from them.
In the single rapier stream Francesco Lodà from beat his co-instructor Stefano, with Carl Gridley and Phil Edwards from SotS in the other semi final slots.
There was then a grand final between the winners of the two streams using both weapon combinations. Rob edged Francesco in the rapier and dagger, but Francesco took the aggregate victory after winning the single rapier.
The other thing worth noting is the cleaness of the fighting. One rapier and dagger pool had no doubles, and another only had one. I wasn't follwing the single rapier as closely but there were very few doubles there as well.
There were plenty of other great fights and good performances, too many to mention, IMHO the general standard was very solid.
