Sunfish Expands its Horizons

Sunfish

 

Feb 9, 2016

Sunfish began its life in the 1950s more of a flat surfboard with a sail and a rudder on it which influenced today’s design of windsurfs and stand up paddle boards.  The Sunfish quickly became the most popular dinghy boat in North America and represented, to many, family fun on the water and idyllic summers. 

After more than 60 years the thrill of Sunfish is still going strong. Known for its simplicity, the Sunfish sailboat provides the perfect platform for those seeking a recreational sailing experience and enjoyment with friends. It truly is a sailboat for everyone.

LaserPerformance’s commitment to the Sunfish continues with the new collection of Sunfish paddle boards, the first of many Sunfish-inspired products for those who enjoy an active lifestyle on the water.

Explore the World of Sunfish by visiting the new interactive site at www.worldofsunfish.com.  Filled with fascinating anecdotes about its modest beginnings, breathtaking photos, and engaging video content, LaserPerformance’s World of Sunfish has something for everyone.

The new buzzed-about Sunfish stand up paddle boards -slated to arrive April 2016- includes three types of boards: Sunfish Air SUP, Sunfish Sport SUP, and Sunfish Tour SUP.

“LaserPerformance has always strived to create memorable experiences for people. World of Sunfish is our newest platform to do just that,” says Bill Crane, LaserPerformance’s Chairman.

New Boats: Beneteau Oceanis 34.1 – A Sleek, Good -Looking Delight To Sail

By Katherine Stone

There is nothing more that I enjoy than being with friends and messing about in boats. Messing about in brand-new boats on a champagne sailing day on Lake Ontario at the beginning of the summer doesn’t get any better. To have the new owner, Helmuth Strobel and Anchor Yachts dealer Pancho Jimenez aboard made it even more special, as they can also speak to what they truly enjoy about the boat. We keep our own boat in a harbour that has a long waiting list for boats over 35 feet, so this little gem would definitely fit the bill and feels like a much bigger boat. True to the spirit of the 7th generation Oceanis line, the 34.1 is built in Poland and replaces the 35.1. It is 1,000 lbs lighter, 14 cm narrower and has 29% more sail area.

Telegraph Cove—from Resource Community to Tourist Delight

Text and photos by Marianne Scott

Telegraph Cove is a small indent situated on Johnstone Strait in the Salish Sea, 15nm southeast of Port McNeill and near Robson Bight, famous for its orca-rubbing beaches. The village has experienced many iterations with a long history—the harbour once served as a summer camp for the Kwakwaka’wakw who fished and hunted here beginning about 8,000 years ago. Many of their descendants still live in the area.

It’s a hopping place in the summer—winter only caretakers remain on site.
