drifting in a Minifish

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.

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.
