(sunfish sailor) Peter Stanton Named Virgin Islands Sailor of the Year



Interestingly, this was aboard the 13-foot, 9-inch long single-handed Sunfish. This isn’t an Olympic boat, but one with a large competitive international following and a size well-suited to Stanton. Sunfish history in the territory was made in 1968 when the first Sunfish World Championships were hosted at the St. Thomas Yacht Club, and again when St. Croix’s Jens Hookanson developed a rig that is still used today.
