it is still a couple months away, but some information is coming out about the 2015 Sunfish Worlds.
as is typical with each Sunfish Worlds event, there will be a special racing sail created for this event – it looks pretty sweet!
a special website has been set up to have all necessary information in one handy place – check it out: http://www.sunfishworlds2015.org/
or you can also visit the Facebook page for the 2015 Sunfish Worlds.
official notices of race for both events can be found on the event website, along with other good information about the venue and the surrounding areas. Paracas looks amazing – with temperatures typically between 55-77 F and wind strengths from 5 to 25 knots, it is said that 95% of the days in a year are sailing days.
you can also see information on the event at the Sunfish Class website.

I said this last year (and the year or 2 before), and didn’t get a chance, but I’m again going to do my best to meet up with this group for some races this year. it’s shaping up to be a pretty busy summer already, though!
