    I had a Sunfish when I was growing up. Lots of fun. I kept it until I had a family and couldn't find time to use it. I wish I still had at now that the kids are grown and moved out. Oh well....

    and sometimes these

    In my opinion one of the, if not the, most challenging and passionate sports out there. I know kind of a bold statement but it really is not something you can just pick up and be good at. If you have any questions just ask :cool:

    I see people racing Sunfish all winter in Rhode Island, even on the coldest days. Frostbite Regattas. They're out there in wetsuits with a flask of whiskey.:crazy:

    We have taken the Hobie out int the winter...IT SUCKS, b/c in hobies the watter is splashing you the whole time. It's possible in a sunfish to stay dry (kinda)

    Does this count?

    I captained this Sparkman & Stephens designed, Hinckley built, 57' yawl for a little over a year (owner was such a douche, the experience got me out of boating for a couple of years).

    Sailed Antigua to Maine, back, and back again...worst trip was the last: only 3 of us on board and had 50+ knot winds and 20-30' seas b/t Bermuda and New England for over 48 hours.

    I grew up sailing a sunfish off the coast of Mississippi. If anyone is selling one in Texas, I am starting to look for one. Hopefully, I will get one before next summer. The next year I am hoping to snag a Catalina 23 or a Hunter 22...

    So, not THIS 295 footer?!!

    "Athena" - built for Jim Clark who was one of original backers of Netscape. This was docked up in Newport when I dropped off a boat yesterday.

    Note how sunny it is. Trip from Sag Harbor (Long Island) to Newport was flat calm, <10kts breeze. Lucky I didn't have to move the boat today as it was rainy and blowing 25 kts out of NE...timing is everything!

    That's the one. Did a one week trip from Charleston to Norfolk on 2002. 6 weeks from New London, CT to Bermuda, Antigua, and San Juan, PR in 2003. and 3 weeks sailing all over the Northeast- stopped in Maine for Lobsterfest...and got to do some sight seeing in Canada.

    It was a great time. My dad got to come with for one week-He took about 1500 photos in about 5 days.

I did compete wit sunfish for 4 years till i lost both mine and my hobie 18 in katrina:mad:. Competed when I was a freshman for university of south alabama (made it all the way to national championships as a freshman woohoo!). Now study too much to sail :(
