I was looking through some of my GoPro video footage from some sailing this summer, and stumbled on this gem… I was sailing on Lake Erie, and had come in towards shore to hop out and adjust the angle of my GoPro Hero video camera that I have mounted out on the boom. it was a bit windy, and right after I adjusted the GoPro, the wind caught the sail against my raised daggerboard, and completely flipped the Sunfish over into the water!

here is another new(ish) Sunfish blogger on the interwebs:
Sunfish 3929′s blog is great – written from the perspective of the Sunfish herself. laced with frustration with her skipper and his fondness for often racing in other boats, it has some great comic relief, and is great angle to take for writing a blog.
Sunfish 3929 is a 1977 Sunfish, owned by her skipper since way back then. being an older boat, she only posts once or twice a month, sometimes with race results from the recent sailing sessions, or sometimes just to complain – because skipper is off sailing on some other boat! [didn't realize Sunfish had such a jealous streak...]
stop by the Sunfish 3929 blog, and give the skipper and 3929 a warm welcome to the blog-o-sphere. heck, maybe offer up a cup of tea, and a shot of Marine Tex. she is an older Sunfish, after all.

so a long time back, I sketched up a concept for a logo for my2fish – a blend of the popular Sunfish logo and my2fish, in sort of retro/70′s bubble letters.
Kyle from Shoreline Sailboats – a Sunfish (& Laser Performance) dealer in Western New York, worked some kind of voodoo computer magic and made me a few color options for the logo.
so what do you think? I’m thinking I might ask/beg/bribe him to make 1 or 2 more – this time with colors matching some of the traditional Sunfish sail colors, like the Olympic (red & blue) and the Mackinaw (green & blue).
