Re: Too big for a sunfish?

It depends on your agility. My brother is a beginner, 6 ft and about 250. He does pretty good but in puffs, he has been knocked down a couple times. Last week it happened twice. Once when he needed to let the sheet lose and his foot was on it. Another time during a sloppy tack with an unexpected gust and him moving to slowly to get over on the new windward rail.
