sunfish parts galore

if you are anywhere near the Dallas/Fort Worth area in Texas and in need of Sunfish parts, there is a craigslist posting by the Dallas Corinthian Yacht Club where they are selling a TON of Sunfish parts.  apparently they are no longer going to be using the Sunfish for their youth program, and are thus selling off the whole lot of them.  posting says this weekend only, so jump on it if you are in that area.

the hulls look to all be older and are pretty beat up, but $150 to $200 range.

sails on booms ($175) or loose sails ($25 to $50)

dcyc-sail

daggerboards and rudders ($75 each)

the craigslist post has a lot more details.  I’m not sure this is your best option if you’re starting with nothing – but if you’re looking for a spare part or two, it’s probably well worth your time.

2017 Sunfish North Americans

the Sunfish Class has posted the NOR and information about the 2017 Sunfish North American Championship: this year it will be hosted by the Sayville Yacht Club in Blue Point, New York.

there are additional details, NOR, and registration information at the following:

2017 Sunfish Youth NA’s  [6/25 to 6/27]

2017 Sunfish NA’s  [6/28 to 7/1]

Sayville Yacht Club is pretty close to the Wet Pants Sailing Association, so I’m sure Sunfish sailors from WPSA will be there in full force.

 

boat parts

Groundhog Day is past, spring is right around the corner… and I can’t help thinking about sailing.

today’s tunes: undertow [Lisa Hannigan]

another great tune and incredibly cool video from Lisa Hannigan – this song is called “Undertow”:

in a strange twist of fate, it seems that my favorite band, The National, has some influence on Lisa, as Aaron Dessner of The National helped Lisa on this latest album.

I found the video via NPR – they have a neat article about the video, you can read it here.

There’s a bit of magic in this video. It feels as if time is moving backward — in part because of the slow motion, but something else felt reversed, too.

read the NPR interview for more details and a spoiler.
