Britain have been crowned champions of the first eSailing Nations Cup after defeating Spain in the final.

After 13 competing nations were whittled down to just two, Britain triumphed 6-3 in the best-of-nine final.

They won five of the opening six races to secure the title.

Race formats varied from one-on-one contests to fleet races featuring all 10 members of the team.

Each team had to include one woman, one man, a captain, the top four sailors from the National Championships and two certified sailors.

British captain Mike O'Donovan - also known as Déjà Vu - was the competitor to secure the all-important fifth win in a one-versus-one Star race that ended in a photo finish.

"It was some really tight racing," the victorious captain said.

"There were some high heart beats. 

"We were aiming for the races that were slightly earlier. 

"We weren’t expecting much for the 10-v-10s but having won the 49er race [first fleet race and first race overall] it was good to have that boost going into the further races."

The eSailing World Championship Final will be held tomorrow, with Déjà Vu among those set to be racing.
