Peru wins 2023 Sunfish World Champs

Published on December 9th, 2023

Jean Paul De Trazegnies of Peru won his third Sunfish Worlds title at the 2023 Class World Championship on December 5-9 in Miami, FL. He finished with five points ahead of Jonathan Martinetti of Ecuador and with 10 fewer points than Conner Blouin (USA).

Amanda Callahan (USA) was the top female, finishing 14th overall, while Bernardo Fernandez of Ecuador was top youth, finishing 15th overall.

One hundred boats competed in the 12-race regatta, with the final race triggering a second throw-out which allowed De Trazegnies to discard a DNF when he had a breakdown on the first day.

The first day saw the most wind, with a strong northwesterly bringing gusts into the 20s. Each day saw the wind further right, with gusts typically up to 12 knots or a bit higher each day. Steep chop added a challenge upwind, but provided almost perfect surfing conditions offwind.
