for every action, there is an equal and opposite reaction.
I admit it, I’m an engineer by day – and should know better about the physics involved here, but I still somehow didn’t see it coming. my brother-in-law thought it’d be fun to jump off the Sunfish as we were approaching the beach. seemed like a reasonable and fun idea to me – until the boat rocked backwards and dumped me off into the water as well!

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.

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.
