I posted this on my blog - I found a guy on Instagram that is attempting to make a wing foil of sorts that can be used with your Sunfish (seems like it had limited success).
sure seems to be a lot of tinkering going on lately (new Farrar sails, new Aerosouth rudders, new LP sails, etc)...
well, it sure looks exactly the same, other than maybe a few extra reinforcing panels.

here is some updated information on the new “modern" Sunfish sails that are being used by the Sunfish sailors on Sag Harbor. the sails are designed by a member of the Sag Harbor Sunfish sailing fleet, along with Kevin Farrar from Farrar Sails in New London, Connecticut. all photos and the...
I was looking at one of my old blog posts and found this great picture - a screen grab from my GoPro video - of when the snap hook at the end of my mainsheet came loose from the traveler and went flying!
Lesson: always double check your knots and rigging before getting out on the water!
Had a reader (thanks Andrew!) of my Sunfish sailing blog reach out to me about mainsheet ratchet block mounting options for a Minifish, particularly wanting to know if it could be done without cutting in an inspection port.
I stuck my cell phone into the port I had cut on my Minifish to see...

Wow, APS recently switched to apparel only (I wasn't thrilled with that decision) and now with COVID-19 issues, they're going to close up shop entirely. It's a shame, but does give you the chance to grab any sailing apparel you might be looking for anyway - and now at 30% off...
I posted this picture on my Sunfish sailing blog a couple days ago - I found it via Twitter from the Shoreham Sailing Club.
curious if anyone here on the Sunfish Forum with all your collective small boat knowledge can get them all?
I think I've figured out 17 out of the 21, but am struggling...
photos shared by Laser Performance yesterday on Twitter and Instagram (probably Facebook too, but I don't use that one).
not sure of the significance – but no sign of the foam flotation blocks. are they being phased out? or just by chance not shown in any of these selected photos?
with APS making the switch out of Sunfish (and other sailboat) supplies and going to apparel only, they have a small amount of inventory left and are offering it at 40% off.

a thread started over in the Laser Forum:
Strange goings-on in the Sunfish class | SailingForums.com
apparently a big shakeup between the Sunfish Class (ISCA) and Laser Performance - with LP now starting control of their own version of the Sunfish Class (ISCO?).
