Yes they are fun to sail but not strong enough. First time I took my wife sailing on my uncle's Sunfish was when we had some good wind and I got her (the boat) planing. Keeping the boat level though caused the aluminum (hollow) mast to fold over. Had to swim to shore puling her (my wife) back. That was no fun, but just B-4 it al happened the vibration, singing and humming of this little boat fighting the elements was great fun. Great little SUNNY state type of vessel.
