Slogan Contest


He's at it again.

I've written before in World's Most Expensive Sail and Dear Sunfish Class about the penchant of a certain pop-star billionaire to use his Sunfish as a romantic location for charming ladies that take his fancy. It was how he first snagged Heather Mills... and we all know how well that turned out. Now Sir Paul McCartney is once again a-wooing on a Sunfish, this time with his latest squeeze Nancy Shevell according to this story in the Mail Online.

Surely this is too good an opportunity for the leaders of the Sunfish class to ignore? Photo after photo, tabloid story after story, proving that the Sunfish is not only a toy of the rich and famous but also, apparently, a powerful aphrodisiac.

So if you were in charge of marketing and public relations for the Sunfish, what slogan would you choose to launch a campaign to promote the boat based on some aspect of this sex/money/pop-star angle?

Paul Macartney's track record is hardly a ringing endorsment of the Sunfishes 'pulling powers'.

I strangely would have to agree, I have not had near enough romantic encounters on sailboats big small or otherwise certainly none on my laser, but too many years ago (in the mid seventies) as a college student I did have a rather interesting encounter on a sunfish, I won't abuse the family audience here with the details but suffice it to say that the women (a non sailor) involved in that encounter was hysterical that the small footwell on the sunfish was refered to as a "cockpit".
