I was racing in light air this weekend. In the middle of the second race, I stood up in the cockpit to see the wind better and to ease the cramps in my legs. The person sailing nearest to me said that it is illegal to sail while standing because of kinetics, and that people have been thrown...
I called them. That's how I found out about the new, one-year warranty.
They said they would get back to me on how to fix it.
An inspection port and through bolts is one obvious way, but I would like to try a less invasive way first. I was thinking of drilling out the gudgeon holes for...
50 feet from the finish of a race, three of the four gudgeon screws fell out of my 2010 Sunfish. I was unable to sail on port and unable to finish the race. Has anyone else had this happen?
What is the best way to fix it?
This boat has been such a lemon.
I have two Sunfish and the Mast Rake is not the same on each. This is due to different mast-step angle placement during manufacturing.
Measuring from the top of the mast to the transom, there is a two inch difference between the two boats.
Does anyone know how this affects performance?
Worlds are to determine a World Champion, not a best average-Joe. Another system that works and is fun is used in the Lightning Class for NA's. Everyone is invited, and qualifying races are held on site. The Blue (Championship) fleet is limited to a specific number, but the boats that don't...
I have the class-legal North race sail, as well as the Intensity race sail (1/3 the cost). The Intensity is at least as fast, and seems to be better made. I also have an APS recreational sail - it is slower because it is smaller, but I got it because I like the colors and I don't race that boat.
The above info page is very interesting. It leaves me with two questions so far.
1) How difficult is it to install a hiking strap on a pre-1990 boat?
2) 1996 - Main sheet swivel block replaces "the hook". What is "the hook", and how hard is it to add a swivel block on a pre-1996 boat?
