Sunfish are incredibly popular and are raced and cruised in over 20 countries. The flexible, tunable rig makes it suited to a diverse range of sailors unmatched by any other single-handed racer. Few classes have women, youth and masters regularly finishing in the top 10 (or winning!) national and World Championships. Since the boat has changed little over the years, you dont need a brand-new Sunfish to start racing. While new boats are reasonably priced, used boats are plentiful, and with perhaps a new sail you are ready to join the fun!
LNYC Sunfish participate in Thursday night racing, Friday Fun Sails, Dinghy club series as well as SAYRA events across the southeast. Some of the favorite regattas include Board Bash, Harkers Island, and the CYC Open at Wrightsville Beach. LNYC hosted the Sunfish North Americans in 2021 with nearly 100 boats participating.
