The aim of this paper is to study 5-manifolds that carry a positive Sasakian structure. Strong restrictions are derived for the integral hemology groups. In some cases, all positive sasakian structures are classified. A key step is the study of log Del Pezzo surfaces whose boundary divisor contains positive genus curves.
