The California-based team of Szabo and Peters impressed the world when they accomplished a huge comeback to win the Star World Champion title this year in Varberg, Sweden. After finishing 54th out of 86 boats in the first race, they reversed their luck to grab a bullet in the second race and climbed their way to the top to win the 2009 Star World Championship. Szabo and Peters hadn’t finished in the top ten since their first World Championship together in 1994 when they finished seventh. The new Star World Champions also won a silver medal at US SAILING's Rolex Miami OCR and bronze medals at the Star North American Championship, Star Eastern Hemisphere Championship and Star Western Hemisphere Championship. Szabo has also been named to the shortlist of US SAILING’s 2009 Rolex Yachtsman of the Year award.
