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.

some of these big boats are so beautiful and graceful as they glide across the water.
let this load up in HD and enjoy it full screen.
this is an awesome video of Australian sailor Oli Tweddell sailing his Finn sailboat.

this is a short video to introduce people to the sailability program at Belfast Lough. the program is intended to give everyone the opportunity to sail – even those with disabilities. the program uses mostly Access 303 wide dinghies.
you can find the original video here.
I’m amazed at the work put in, often by volunteers, to establish and maintain a program such as this.
