sunfish worlds 2011: day 1

day 1 of the 2011 Sunfish Worlds is in the books, with 3 races completed this afternoon.  the current leader is a familiar face, David Loring of the USA, who has won the Sunfish Worlds three times already, with his latest win in 2009.  he holds a 3.5 point lead over Jon-Paul Patin of the USA, also a previous Sunfish Worlds winner (1992). [you can see a full list of previous Worlds champions here.]  the host country Curacao has 3 sailors currently in the top 10, led by Ard van Aanholt in 4th place, and Curacao has 9 sailors in the top 30. Jean Paul de Trazegnies from Peru, the winner of the 2011 Sunfish Youth Worlds a few days ago, is currently in 13th place.

as usual, there are some amazing photos of the sailing action out on the water, although apparently Bea Moedt is having some issues with the camera and water not getting along!  but you could have fooled me – these photos are fantastic, and it looks like amazing, and maybe a little bit crazy conditions out on the water.
