Sunfish sailing in Dominican Republic

Thread starter #1
Hello, lately I have followed a couple of entries on the subject of winter sailing in the sun, warm weather and reliable trade winds. We have all of this here in Las Terrenas, Samanà, Dominican Republic. Our sailing club has 5 Sunfish, two private, the rest belonging to the club and can be rented for RD$ 1'000.- (approx. US$ 22.-)per hour. Some of the boats, sometimes all, are usually out sailing most afternoons when the wind is up! There are Sunfish sailors and small fleets also in Boca Chica, La Romana, Barahona and Pedernales, though I don't know about rentals. Two weeks ago we sailed the Dominican nationals for Sunfish in Boca Chica with a fleet of 19 boats. Our club organizes an annual regatta for Optimist, Sunfish and Lasers, usually on the labour day weekend in May.
