Great Britain's Luke Patience and Stuart Bithell claimed silver in the men's 470 class after just falling short of gold on the south coast.
The pair came into the re-arranged medal race with second-place assured and still eyeing top spot, which they hoped to wrestle off Mathew Belcher and Malcolm Page.
Patience and Bithell needed at least one boat in between them and the Australians to take gold, but, after an impressive start, lost ground on their rivals, who finished ahead of the home favourites to claim the victory.
