Re: Too big for a sunfish?

Yes, any winds 15 knots or more will make your Sunfish get up and plane on the surface of the water, even with 2 moderately sized adults on board. You will notice this when reaching or heading downwind and if you are not hiking out to balance the boat you may very well end up in the water! Great fun and great exercise for the gut.
