how to rig a Sunfish

I found another Sunfish rigging guide, this one at A Comfortable Sail.  it is a simple 1-page written step-by-step procedure that was created by Matt for the Johnson County Sailing Society (JCSS) that sails on Sunfish sailboats at Shawnee Mission Park Lake in Kansas.  here is a snapshot of the introduction (below), and here is a link to the original file (a .pdf file).

combine this with my list of Sunfish rigging guide(s), and hopefully you shouldn’t have any trouble getting your boat rigged correctly, and out on the water for some fun sailing.

or you could just skip all that silly reading, and be the guy out on the water with your boat rigged something like this.  I found this picture on a Craigslist “for sale” ad… I’m pretty sure he has never sailed the boat before.

    That would be called the “Neetal” rig.
