    Question What is the fastest a Sunfish can go?

    This is neither here or there relative to the sale of your boat. I am an Erie native and as a lad sailed my Force 5 in the bay and out of Northeast. Now sail J22 and Sunfish in CO and big boats out of San Diego.

Planning a family vacation for next summer at Lake Winnie and curious if there is a place to rent a Sunfish for the week. We sail a Sunfish and J22 here in CO but will be...

    Any Denver area Sunfish sailors race in any of the local series like Cherry Creek DSA, Chatfield, Union, Carter ? None of these seem to have a designated Sunfish class which probably means not enough participants. That puts the Sunfish in a Portsmouth rating going up against a mish-mash of other...
