Skim Over The Ice With… A Skate’s Sail

Skate sailing might be described as the fastest pedestrian sport in the world except for jaywalking on the Hollywood Freeway. And until something comes along to top its 50 to 60-mile-per-hour maximum speeds, that claim will stand.

All that’s required to take up this exciting pastime are a pair of skates, a good stretch of ice and a sail that can be made at negligible cost in any home workshop.

These plans were published in the 1959 February issue of Mechanix Illustrated and if you feel like skimming over the ice like the blokes on the picture above, click the icon below and set to work
