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.

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.

check out this short video of footage from this year’s WINDY and wavy Sunfish Worlds Championships!

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.

a few days ago in preparation for the Sunfish Worlds, Dinghy Shop – a sailboat & watersports dealer in Amityville, New York –  posted these great photos of some of the new Sunfish sailboats on their Instagram account:

frostbiting with Bill [videos]

here are (2) videos from just a few days ago of Bill Brangiforte sailing his Sunfish for the Frostbiting at Barrington Yacht Club in Rhode Island.  both videos are of a full race, so they are about 15 minutes long (each!).  I just recently posted Bill’s “Words of Wisdom” from his racing experience at the 2012 Sunfish Worlds.

race 1

race 2 – about 2 minutes or so into this race, as Bill is tacking his mainsheet snags on his life jacket, and he comes pretty close to tipping over!
