[sailing] anarchy in the UK

trying to ignore the drama and politics that has been going on in the last few months (years?) between both the Sunfish and Laser classes and the official builder, Laser Performance, and instead focus on the positive: Sunfish production has begun in the UK.  hopefully this will improve quality and help with new model and parts availability for the Sunfish sailing class.

here are pictures (all photos by Laser Performance, shared on Twitter and Instagram):

a nice glimpse at the construction process and inner workings of a Sunfish.

a healthy dose of fiberglass and gelcoat.

not sure of the significance – but no sign of the foam flotation blocks.  are they truly being phased out? or just not shown in any of these selected photos?

post title is a mashup of the Sailing Anarchy forum and the song by the Sex Pistols.

    … so, does this eventually mean that the spare part supply for Sunfish in Europe also may improve? Would be nice …

    A bit off topic, but some good news: the Hampton Roads Sunfish Challenge was cancelled this year at the very last moment. Many of us thought that this indicated that the extremely popular event would be gone forever. They just announced that the race would go on in September of 2020. Anybody who loves the Sunfish (or Minifish in my case) ought to check it out!
