retirement goal?

I saw this posted on the Sunfish Forum.

mid-life crisis? or perhaps just a solid retirement plan? either way that looks like a fun combination.

I’ll follow the sun[fish]

Sir Paul of The Beatles has been spotted out sailing a Sunfish again.

Paul appeared confident in his abilities judging by his casual attire, which he chose instead of opting for protective clothing such as a wet suit.

I’ve blogged about Paul’s sailing fondness for the Sunfish before here and here.

sunfish in a pool

a little while back, a conversation started on the Yahoo Sunfish Sailor email group (this is kind of a dated forum and difficult to navigate, but there remains a wealth of information stored there in the archives.  the newer Sunfish Forum is much easier to post questions, search the historical posts and in general get quicker advice).

anyway, someone posed the question: “what’s the smallest lake you have ever sailed your Sunfish on?”

answers came in with quite a variety – small lakes, a few ponds, Johnson Slough for the Great Pumpkin Regatta to name a few.

but then, a picture was posted by a Sunfish sailor named Mike that takes the cake:

“In 1979 my best friend and I put my 1970 Sunfish in our backyard pool”

in fairness to the other small body of water sailors, this doesn’t really count as “sailing”, as the Sunfish in the swimming pool is a naked hull – with no sail or seemingly any other hardware, but still a creative little stunt to pull off, and certainly the smallest body of water in comparison to the others mentioned.

the more important question: how did they end up with a Sunfish deck color that matched their swimming pool slide color?! that’s coordination taken to a whole new level. 😉
