After five days of intense racing in Florida, Martha’s Vineyard Regional High School senior Rasmus (Raz) Sayre (USA) triumphed at the 2014 Kona World Championships, beating a talented field and ahead of two legends of the sport: Tim Aagesen (DEN) and his own father, Nevin Sayre (USA)!

A total of 106 sailors from 13 nations and four continents competed at the event this year, a record for the class. The championship was graced with a dizzying range of wind conditions, from 12 to 30 knots, but nothing fazed Raz. After all, windsurfing is in his genes: Nevin is an American windsurfing icon and his mother, Stina, is a former Swedish international windsurfer. His sister, Solvig, sails on the American RS:X-team, just like Raz, and finished in 11th overall (and 3rd woman) here at the Kona Worlds, behind Canadian Olympic team member Dominique Vallée and Swedish sensation Andrea Holm, who took the world title in Florida for the third time in a row (she won previously in Maspalomas in 2012 and in Trois-Rivières in 2013)!

Nevin Sayre: “Today, I am a proud father! I am also grateful for the opportunity to compete in the same international championship as both my children. That is was makes Kona quite unique!”
