Published on September 1st, 2017
Brant Beach, NJ (September 1, 2017) – Twenty-one year old Alonso Collantes of Peru defended his 2016 title and won the Sunfish World Championship. Two races were sailed today to conclude the series.
The day started out with everyone snuggled in their warmest clothes in chilly 12-15 mph winds but would gradually warm up. The winds later died down requiring the Race Committee to shorten the last race to make certain that at least two races were completed on this last day.
Racing for 54 competitors representing 10 countries was held on August 28 to September 1.
