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.
I stumbled on these unique paintings a couple days ago. the artist Sean Landers has created a collection called “Around the World Alone”, where he depicts a solo clown, sailing on the ocean.
for more details and additional paintings – see the full collection at Petzel Gallery.
everybody’s foiling these days. will the Sunfish be next?
a cool photo of JFK and Jackie with a Sailfish sailboat.
the Sailfish was the predecessor to the Sunfish. it was the first boat created by Alex Bryan and Cortlandt Heyniger – the founders of Alcort. the Sailfish is a board boat with a lateen rig, very similar to a Sunfish – but it was made out of wood and had a flat hull that you had to sit on top of while sailing.
