I lived in Naples, Fl and sailed my sunfish regularly in both calm and stiff wind out on the gulf, your limitations are directly linked to your confidence and ability. In 8 years of towing the sunfish as a dinghy the, only problem I ever encountered was a mast shear at the deck level, however it should be noted I had a phantom sail on her which swept the deck with her extra size. I replaced the mast and sailed on, the wind was 25 to 30 knotts out of the east that day!
