I was skimming through some of my GoPro videos from our vacation last summer at Camp Arcadia on Lake Michigan, and I took a quick screenshot of T2 drifting along in the Minifish on a very calm day out on Lake Michigan.
it was an awesome day – sailing with my boys, but with them sailing solo in the Minifish while I was alone or with one of them in the Sunfish. after a bit, the boys switched places, and Noah got his turn drifting along in the Minifish.
not the greatest amount of wind, but still a beautiful day to mess about on the Great Lakes.
