    New LP rumor

    https://bluekeelsailing.com/ It shows pictures of some Cascais model boats, but no Sunfish.  There's a FAQ section under "Contact Us".  For "Are you associated with LaserPerformance?", it says this: "We have a non-exclusive agreement to distribute LaserPerformance products in North America and...
