Hi all.
Just out of curiosity. My wife has been sailing her "Miss Sunshine" for 7 summers now, absolutely problem free. Not that long I know, just interested to hear how other Sparrows are doing.

Cheers, Terry.
I was born intelligent, but my education made me stupid.

Launched December 2012. Still going strong. In retrospect, I am glad that I built this as my first yacht. It set a standard which I try to maintain in all my builds. It was hard work and I would rather not attempt anything like that again but I am glad that I did. My current favorite is a lovely Panache designed by Vic Smeed. Easy to build and sails beautifully. The sparrow is far from neglected and comes out with me on every outing.
