it is still a couple months away, but some information is coming out about the 2015 Sunfish Worlds.
the sailing this year will be held in Paracas, Peru, in early October. the Youth Sunfish Worlds will take place at the same venue, in the few days preceding the 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.
the 2014 Youth Sunfish Worlds has just completed at Camp Sea Gull Camp Seafarer. the Camp put together this awesome video highlighting the racing.
more information can be found at the Sunfish Class website.
the Sunfish Worlds will be held this year at Camp Sea Gull Camp Seafarer in North Carolina. the custom sail and boat design by Laser Performance and the Sunfish Class have been released and look pretty awesome. the ship’s wheel and anchor on opposite sides is a neat touch.
my only complaint? does it have to be blue and yellow? NOT my favorite color combination.

here is another great video of the 2013 Sunfish Worlds racing at Lewes, Delaware. those were some crazy conditions! heavy wind, huge waves… made for some challenging racing, I would think.
check out this short video of footage from this year’s WINDY and wavy Sunfish Worlds Championships!
this is a cool video showing the difficulties in launching a Sunfish in the strong winds and heavy wave conditions at Lewes, Delaware earlier this month at the 2013 Sunfish Worlds. the wind and waves were severe enough that the racers were only able to complete 5 races during the several days of racing.
