Tuscany, Italy - Jonathan Martinetti of Ecuador has won the 2010 Sunfish World Championship. On the last day of the regatta there was a single race planned. Martinetti entered the day with a narrow 5 point lead of David Mendelblatt. Mendelblatt went on to win the final race, while Martinetti was 6th - creating a tie on points. By virtue of his 3 first place finishes, Jonathan won the tie breaker.
Both Jonathan and David are to be congratulated for sailing an amazing regatta. In addition, the youth of our Sunfish Class have demonstrated that they will be a force to be reckon with for many years as Junior sailors took six of the top 10 positions overall!
Thank you to the Italian Sunfish Class for hosting the event. Get ready for Curacao in 2011!}
