I quickly snapped this photo when I was sailing the Sunfish a few weeks ago during our vacation. winds were nice, probably in the high teens and gusting over twenty mph. I had the lake all to myself and was flying across the water.

I’m a big fan of Jamestown Distributors, and have been on their email list for quite some time. today’s email had a nice little photo surprise – an old wooden Sunfish!
for Sunfish sailors, Jamestown Distributors is an excellent source for epoxy & fiberglass supplies for when it comes time to make repairs to your Sunfish hull. they supply West System epoxy & all the various fillers, and they have recently started their own line of boat repair products, the “Total Boat” line. I also used JD to purchase supplies for when I did the repairs and re-finished my Sunfish daggerboards and rudders.

a contribution to the weekly photo challenge close up.
(mine is not exactly macro photography, but rather just a random close encounter with a few baby robins in a nest tucked away in the grapevines at my parents’ house).

today is the 6th birthday of the my2fish blog about sunfish sailing! a lot changes over a 6-yr period. yet strangely here I am again with a 1-year old son, same as 6 years ago. but now there are three older boys.
somehow I’m up to 4 sailboats now: my original 1960’s Super Porpoise, a 1960’s Sunfish, a 2000 Sunfish, and now a 1970’s Minifish for my 2 older boys to sail. I guess the “2” part of my2fish doesn’t exactly apply anymore, but I think I’ll just keep the name as it is.
life is busy as always, one thing after another, but I try to get a few days of sailing in each year. this past week has been a vacation at a small lake, and we’ve been able to sail on 3 days so far.
here’s to the new year!
