Hello from Florida. I started sailing a couple months ago. I got a sovereign 17 and have been doing some dingy sailing. Going to do some sunfish this weekend. Looking forward to chatting with everyone here!
When you get comfortable on the sunfish try sailing it while standing up!..
Used to do that...it's a blast. You need a fresh breeze, 15 +.... I would shift my weight, put the port gunwale in the water and skim the water with the sail.....lots of fun...no tacking though until you sit down....:laugher. Miss that!
Thanks everyone. We did about 7 miles on the sunfish on Saturday up in northern MN. Might try another go today with 10-15 knots forecast. And then back to FL. I've been tempted to get a sunfish for FL but I already have a small 17ft keelboat. I don't want to be a sailboat hoarder but it might be a fun one around the beaches!
