Fellow windsurfer Annalise Gilbrt finished the week 17th , picking up a 15th in Friday's only race.
In the multihull open class Paul Darmanin and Aleks Vucic were 10th, crossing the line in the top 10 in all but one of the regatta's 12 races.
Australia's Laser Radial girls and boys representatives, Ashley Stoddart and Matthew Wearn, both finished their tough week on a high in the final race.
Stoddart saved her best result until last, winning the 12th and final race of the event to finish 33rd overall.
Wearn was second in Friday's race to leave him 25th at his first ISAF Youth Sailing World Championship.
"The results from our sailors this week have been positive for the future as they have all gained some invaluable experience," said Stowell. "The entire team is driven to try and qualify to come back for next year's Youth Worlds, they've all gotten so much out of the last week."
