This Thing is Getting Popular

Sunfish are starting to gather on the lake
The Saturday Sunfish Series is getting more popular and the competition is heating up. Three new racers showed up today to help create the most crowded Sunfish line of the series. Mike Goldstein, Gary Werden and John Houstle came to race today, bringing the total number of Sunfish Sailors entered in the series to 12. The competition was very close all afternoon, with Mark Stoughton, Gary, Mike, and John all taking firsts.  A lot of the races were decided in the last 40 feet, and often the first second and third place finishers were separatated by less than a half boat length. Gary took 4 firsts, Mark 2 and John and Mike took 1 each.  To show how close the competition was, Mark hit for the cycle today, with 2 firsts, 2 seconds, 2 thirds and 2 fourths.

  1. Sounds like fun. Maybe I should get a Sunfish and come and join you.

  4. I'm scarred from my first Laser experience, and haven't touched one since. We should be co-dependants for our addictions.

  5. Turn me once. Shame on you. Turn me twice. Shame on me.

    Seriously. I was "turned" from Laser sailing to Sunfish sailing once before. I almost became addicted.

    But I went cold turkey. Sunfish free now for 6 years, 9 months, 28 days.

  6. A friend of mine has a saying: "I'll try anything once, twice if I like it". Sounds like you need to try it twice.
