sunfish youth worlds 2011: day 2, day 3 & results

on day 2 of the Sunfish Youth Worlds, Kevin Van Otterdijk from Curacao made up for a RAF (retire after finish) result from day 1, and took over 1st place by winning races 4 and 5, and taking 2nd place in race 6.  he held a slim 2-pt lead over Jean Paul de Trazegnies from Peru going into the final day of racing.

even though Kevin Van Otterdijk raced well on day 3, finishing with a 3rd place and a 2nd place in the 2 races, he was surpassed by Jean Paul de Trazegnies from Peru, who scored a bullet (1st place) in both of the final races, to be crowned the Sunfish Youth Worlds Champion, claiming 1st place by a single point over Kevin Van Otterdijk from Curacao.

Eugene Kendrikx from Curacao and Ivan Aponte from Puerto Rico took 3rd and 4th place.  Curacao finished with 6 of the top 10 youth sailors.  you can see the full results of all 8 races at
