Knapton barely had time to celebrate his first major win of the season before rushing off to be by the side of his heavily pregnant wife Tina.
She was due to give birth to twins at any moment but babies Ava and Otto did the right thing, hanging on until Tuesday to deliver Knapton the perfect end to a hectic few days.
"My head is spinning a bit…it's been a memorable few days," Knapton said.
"I was pretty safe going sailing on Saturday but obviously the birth was always in the back of my mind.
"The boys (crew Pete Mackie and Harry Morton) did a good job and we were able to pick up the win, so it all turned out well."
