so, I was flipping through the 2011 catalog that I got in the mail a few days ago from Annapolis Performance Sailing (APS), and I’m a little frustrated with the way they show the new “practice” or “recreational” (so basically not class-legal) sails. here is a scan from the 2010 catalog, but it is identical in the current 2011 catalog, other than minor price changes:
my concern is that looking at this page from the magazine, there is no indication that the significantly cheaper recreational sail (above the picture of the 2 sails) will be arriving at your doorstep without the Sunfish logo. if you go onto the APS website, they have these practice/recreational sails shown correctly, without the Sunfish logo – but if you only looked at the catalog, you might assume the logo is going to be there. here is a snapshot from the website:
if you’re looking for a cheaper Sunfish sail to replace your old, worn-out sail – this is a perfectly good option if you’re a recreational sailor, or if your local club will allow the non-class-legal sail for club racing – but just be aware that it won’t arrive with the Sunfish logo, as it is not the official class-approved sail.
but, you can always just buy some insignia cloth, and make your own logo if you’d really like to see that little Sunfish up there when you’re sailing. that’s what I’m planning on doing!
