Jeffrey Olsen from Sarasota, Florida entered the final day of the regatta with a small lead. When competitors arrived at the sailing center on the final day, they faced a strong breeze. These are conditions where Olsen thrives. He went out and dominated the final day with consecutive race victories to secure the championship.

Bill Brangiforte continued his dominant form in route to capturing Sunfish International Masters Championship. Brangiforte, the 2010 Sunfish North American Champion, competes all winter as a member of the Barrington Yacht Club Frostbite fleet in Rhode Island.

Bill Brangiforte and Eric Woodman, both of Massachusetts and the Barrington Frostbite Fleet, took home the top two spots at the 2012 Sunfish International Masters championship held in Sanford Florida on March 16-18. Besting a 57-boat fleet, Brangiforte added the International Masters to his recent wins at the 2010 North Americans, the US Masters and multiple New England Regionals.
