The 2013 Sunfish International Masters is a three day event for any Sunfish sailors who are 40 or older. It is an international event so sailors from all over the world are welcome to sail, meet old friends and enjoy the TampaBay area. The event is followed by the Sunfish Mid-Winters in Sarasota, Florida the following weekend so it is a good warm up regatta that allows a few days to recover before doing it all over again.
Despite Superstorm Sandy scoring a direct hit on Long Beach Island, New Jersey, the Brant Beach Yacht Club is looking forward to hosting the 2013 Sunfish North Americans, Youth NAs and Youth Worlds, as planned.
The Sunfish Class is a proud participating Class in the Pan American Games. The initail interest in having the Class selected for Pan American Games competition was sought by Venezuela as they prepared to host the Games in 1983.
