    I'd like to invite everyone to come to Norfolk, VA for the 9th running of the Hampton Roads Sunfish Challenge and Dinghy Race! This race is lots of fun!

    Here are some pictures published in Spinsheet of a previous year's event : 2015 Hampton Sunfish Challenge - SpinSheet

    Here is the Regatta website: sunfish-challenge

    There are classes for other dinghies and beach cats too, so please encourage your non-Sunfish friends to come too.

    Hope to see you there!

    As of now, there are 3 different Sunfish classes: Racing, Recreational, and Tandem. You can pick which class you would like to be a part of. The Recreational fleet is open to any normal Sunfish rig and the Tandem class is for boat with two people on board.
    There are at least 3 more local guys who always wait until the last minute to sign up in the racing fleet.

    There are 13 Sunfish currently registered with more expected.
    The organizer has set up a section of the website under the "more" heading where people can offer to loan a boat, or find a boat to borrow.
