today’s tunes: nineteen hundred and eighty five

a sailor on the Sunfish Forum was looking for help determining the age of his Minifish, and posted this hull ID number. 


the last 2 digits indicate the year the boat was built: 1985. 

makes me think of this groovy number by Sir Paul, himself no stranger to the Sunfish sailboat!

Sir Paul sails a Sunfish

I’ve posted a few photos from this Sunfish sailing session of Sir Paul’s down in Rio before at my blog post: here comes the sun[fish] – I didn’t realize there was video of it until recently I saw this video posted on the Sunfish Forum.

the video has a bit of a stalker feel to it, but I imagine that’s par for the course with big celebrities.

a few other blogger’s have previously posted about Sir Paul sailing the Sunfish: Proper Course: Dear Sunfish Class and World’s Most Expensive Sail and Captain JP’s log: Celebrity Sailing

here comes the sun[fish]

it appears that Sir Paul McCartney enjoys sailing, and recently spent that time on a Sunfish!  he’s down in Rio for some concerts, and took a break to go and sail on the Bay Guanabara, near the beach in Urca.

here comes the sun[fish] and I say it’s alright
little darling, it seems like years since it’s been here

I first saw the article over at the Sunfish Forum, that linked to this article (English translation).  both photos are from that article.
