    We just got in after the final day of racing and it looks like David Loring is now a 3-time Sunfish World Champ. 2nd was PJ Patin, followed by David Mendelblatt. Less than 3 points separated the top 3 finishers. There are some protests and at least 3 boats were over early in the last race and didn't restart, but concensus seems to be the top 3 were not among the boats called over.

    Mendelblatt won the first race today, his 3rd in a row. Patin won the final race. Only 2 races sailed today . We have video interviews with both Medelblatt and Loring posted here:

    Lots of new photos on the photos page, too.

    Thanks for making the videos of Loring and Mendelblatt available. It is interesting in what they do to make the fish go fast.
