Re: Too big for a sunfish?

I don't think 270#s is too much for a Sunfish.
I help teach a sailing program for teens in the summer and we routinely put an adult and 2 or 3 teens on each Sunfish.
I have also sailed a Sunfish with 2 medium build adults on board with a combined weight over 300 #s and it works fine, especially if there is some wind. When the wind blows you need that extra ballast.
