Sunfish Laser unveiled the revolutionary Escape daysailer two years ago in Florida. Company president Peter Johnstone remarked, I want to bring new sailors into the sport, and until the creation of the Escape, the vehicle to do so did not exist. At just under 12 feet, rotationally cast of impact-resistant polyethylene and foam, powered by a simple self-tacking rig with its own dial-up trimming key, stable as a gym floor, the Escape had instant appeal. It went on to become one of the best-selling sailboats in North America. It has been joined this year by a smaller version, the Escape 9.
