I'm not a huge fan of Sunfish. The rig is basically a windsurfer that you're sitting down in. No jib/foresail...no spinnaker possibility. If all you want to do is putz around in lakes, by all means...go Sunfish.

But I'd keep a lookout for a used 420. Marginally more money in the long term, and they have infinitely more options/capabilities.
