2014 Sunfish Worlds boat & sail logos unveiled

the Sunfish Worlds will be held this year at Camp Sea Gull Camp Seafarer in North Carolina.  the custom sail and boat design by Laser Performance and the Sunfish Class have been released and look pretty awesome. the ship’s wheel and anchor on opposite sides is a neat touch.

my only complaint? does it have to be blue and yellow?  NOT my favorite color combination.

2013 Sunfish Worlds [video]

here is another great video of the 2013 Sunfish Worlds racing at Lewes, Delaware.  those were some crazy conditions! heavy wind, huge waves… made for some challenging racing, I would think.

here’s a short video from the 2011 Sunfish North American’s at Barrington YC, Rhode Island – what starts out as a drifter turns into a race towards shore to beat the oncoming storm – lightning, rain, fun times.

launching a Sunfish in heavy waves [video]

this is a cool video showing the difficulties in launching a Sunfish in the strong winds and heavy wave conditions at Lewes, Delaware earlier this month at the 2013 Sunfish Worlds.  the wind and waves were severe enough that the racers were only able to complete 5 races during the several days of racing.

cold air sunfish racing [video]

here is another video of frostbiting at Barrington Yacht Club in Rhode Island.  this one is edited down nicely and is much shorter, only about 2 minutes long, but catches a lot of the action out on the water.
