Grand Cayman was the fifth location of a 14-stop tour, which headed to the Domincan Republic shortly after Cayman. The winners of the women’s title in this leg were Betsi Flint and Kelley Larsen of United States-A – it was a close victory over Karen Cope and Nathalia Alfaro of Costa Rica. Taylor and Trevor Crabb of United States-A claimed the men’s title, with Cameron Wheelan and Michel Plantinga coming second.
It was an excellent tournament – one of many great events in the Cayman Islands.
