On Day 1 of the 2009 North American Championship, the youth of the Ecuador Sailing Team served notice that they will be a serious force to reckon with during the regatta. After capturing the Junior North American title on Tuesday, seventeen year old Jonathan Martinetti continued where he left off and dominated the first day of racing. Jonathan used excellent speed and solid tactics to best his more experienced competitors, and win 4 out of the 5 races. Fifteen year old Kamilla Sabogal, also from Ecuador, sailed consistently to all top 10 finishes, and sits in second overall. Alan Uram of Charleston, SC leads the US sailors and is in third overall.

On Monday night after racing, the water levels at James Island YC rose so high that the club’s parking lot flooded. This was a clear indication that the currents for the following day would be extremely strong. The second day dawned with a 10 knot northerly breeze. After sailing in a windy northerly on day 1, many of the smaller sailors elected to get an education on the Gust Adjust. However, as the racers left the shore the breeze had dropped. By the time the first races were supposed to start, there was almost no breeze in the outgoing current. Eventually, signs of a thermal sea breeze could be seen near the eastern end of Charleston Harbor near Fort Sumter, and the races got started in a East-Southeast flow.

Cameron Hall of St Petersburg YC was the pace setter for day 2. In every race he battled with Jonathan Martinetti of Ecuador, the overnight leader.

At the conclusion of the 7 race series, Martinetti captured the Junior North American Championship. Kamilla Sabogal, also from Ecuador, remained in second place overall. After his strong performance on the second day, Cameron Hall jumped into third place. Arianna Villena from Ecuador continued to sail well to sit in fourth overall. Nick Valente sailed a consistent series and rose to fifth place overall.

In the Midget division, Savannah’s Elise Marshall extended her first day’s lead to win the title. She was pushed hard by Emily Nolan and Robert Gossett.

In the evening the sailors were treated to dinner and awards in the James Island YC. The jubilent atmosphere at dinner made it clear that while the sailors had been competitors on the water,they had also forged many new friendships. They exchanged contact information and made promises to sail again together in Mattituck, NY in 2010.



Charleston, SC - The James Island Yacht Club is hosting 25 youth sailors at the 2009 Midget and Junior North American Sunfish Championships. The participants are representing six different US Sunfish Regions - Florida (1), Gulf Coast (2), Mid-Atlantic (5), New York (1), Southeast (12) and Southwest (1). In addition, there are three sailors representing the South American country of Ecuador.

The first day of racing was dominated by Jonathan Martinetti of Ecuador. He completed a perfect score card by winning all four of the day’s races. His fellow Ecuador Sailing Team members, Kamilla Sabogal and Arianna Villena sailed consistently to sit in second and third place overall.

The regatta will conclude tomorrow with three races scheduled.
