Joaquín Razetto is one of the best sailors in Peru’s sailing history. On two occasions he has been awarded with “Laureles Deportivos del Perú”, the country’s government's biggest distinction to an athlete for achieving a World Championship title. His success started at a young age as he conquered important national and international events. In 1999 he won the Optimist Team Racing World Championship in Martinique, France. He moved on to sail Lasers and attended 3 South American championships and became a Laser 4.7 national champion in 2003. After some years of sailing the Laser he stepped on the J24, a boat that he has been sailing for many years. He is an 8-time J24 Peruvian national champion over the years (06,08,11,12,13,17,18,19), and has participated in four World championships and two South American championships. In 2011, he and his J24 crew became vice world champions in Buenos Aires, Argentina. “Joaquín has proven to be a great sailor and person on and off the water. His talent and ability to work in a team have helped him achieve important results for the country. His competitiveness and positivity will help the team stay sharp and have a good chance at winning the cup. These skills make him a sailor anyone would love to have in their team. He is extremely excited to be part of SSL Team Peru.” (Stefano Peschiera).
