    One piece Super Sunfish Mast?

    This week a fellow Sunfish racer friend gave me what he thought was a vintage Super Sunfish mast and boom that he had inherited from his father.

    Old Sailfish Demo Job - Not for the Faint of Heart

    Rudder angle change

    It looks like the Sunfish Class (subject to approval by World Sailing) will approve a change in the class specs to allow the rudder blade to be more vertical. I think this is good change. I hear that this change will improve control in heavier air, especially downwind. It also looks like an...
