I’m doing the work

I’m not a slacker!

has the increase in instantaneous, short snippets of information, ready to be instantly accessed via various forms of social media caused a decrease in blogging?

is it easier to post something or “like” it on Facebook?

have Instagram, Pinterest, and Tumblr taken over as the place to look for sailing/nautical images and then some?

have Twitter, Snapchat, or the latest social media craze sapped away all of our fleeting attention spans?

sunfish sailing aruba [video]

this is a pretty sweet video of Sunfish sailing in Aruba.  the Sunfish are flying across the water!

thanks to RL from the SunfishSailor blog for sharing it with me (via good ol’ fashioned email, not this new-fangled thing called Facebook!).

sunfish worlds 2011

the Sunfish Worlds for 2011 is only a few days away.  this year, the championship event is being held at Curacao at the Lions Dive & Beach Resort Curacao – which looks amazing!  there’s a nice aerial view (with notes) here. here’s another shot from above:

from the Sunfish Class website:

The Sunfish Class is returning to the beautiful island of Curaco for its 41st World Championship. Come visit the beautiful island and experience sailing at its finest!

It has been 20 years since the championship was last contested in the waters off Curacao. This year the Lions Dive Beach Resort will host the Youth and Open championships. From its protected beach, you sail only a couple of minutes into the open ocean where the steady trade winds blow.

the Sunfish Youth Worlds will be June 7th through 11th (Notice of Race, .pdf file), and the Sunfish Worlds will be June 12th through 18th (Notice of Race, .pdf file).

there is a great website that has been set up for the event this year: http://www.sunfishworlds2011.com/.  the website is loaded with a ton of great information for the event, including the schedule of activities, regular & junior racer profiles for those participating in the event, tons of past results and information from previous Sunfish Worlds, and even a link to a webcam at the harbor.  you can also download the event program (.pdf file).

also, as usual with any of the Sunfish Worlds events, you can order one of the Worlds event Sunfish boats – brand new boats that are provided for the Worlds by Laser Performance, and will have only been used for this regatta.  ordering from Curacao, though, will require shipping the boat back to the USA (or wherever you may be!).

for those interested in following the event – I will try to post information and updates that as I find it around on the internet, and you can follow on your own using the following updates:
