here comes the sun[fish]

it appears that Sir Paul McCartney enjoys sailing, and recently spent that time on a Sunfish!  he’s down in Rio for some concerts, and took a break to go and sail on the Bay Guanabara, near the beach in Urca.

here comes the sun[fish] and I say it’s alright
little darling, it seems like years since it’s been here

I first saw the article over at the Sunfish Forum, that linked to this article (English translation).  both photos are from that article.


this post is for tillerman‘s writing project of the month – please please me, with direction to blog about something with a post title using the name of a song by the Beatles, and have it be more or less related to your blog.  after seeing photos of one of the Beatles sailing in a Sunfish, how could I not enter this as my submission?  stop by tillerman‘s blog – Proper Course – for frequent updates from other bloggers who post something about the Beatles.

    after consulting The Google, it seems that tillerman himself has covered Sir Paul sailing a Sunfish before – maybe Paul has a fondness for the Sunfish?

    ha! I knew I’d read about Sir Paul and his proclivity for using a Sunfish as a pick-up vehicle somewhere before!

    Personally, TQ & I took a Sunfish out for a short spin together last weekend – and I have to admit that I still think that if we wanted to start doing a lot of sailing together, we might want to think about a bigger boat. It’s technically a 2 person boat, but those 2 people have to like each other very much, and neither of them can be very big! 😀

      bonnie – I agree that it’s pretty cramped with 2 people. bottom line – don’t sail with people you don’t like!

      keep me posted if you upgrade to something a bit larger, I’ll be curious what you decide on.

    the sunfish Sir Mccartney is sailing is my boat in Rio de Janeiro! He is a fan of the sunfish boat and when he came to Rio he asked if there were any sunfish in Brazil, since that´s the only boat he sails!

    Best Rgds,

    I think that is Ringo inspecting the mast step.
