    Sunfish with a jib

    Interesting this subject came up recently when I was given some deck hardware. The previous owner told me how he had sailed a sunfish with an extra sail years ago. He must have been talking about the ready to go jib kit. I would love to see some info on this.

    How old were your children the first time you took them sailing?

    Is there a recommended age children should be before they go sailing with you? I know wearing a life vest and being able to swim would be important, but is there a typical age when they are ready to be on the Sunfish with you?
