The Minisail

The Minisail was conceived in 1959 as more or less a Sailing Surfboard. It was established as a semi-development class throughout the 60s and 70s, with a number of significant variations appearing. However, it disappeared from the scene in the early 80s, leaving various examples scattered around, often seemingly abandoned. The well-known Topper is a development of the Minisail, and there are many similarities between them. However, the Minisail is much more of a racing boat at heart with a much larger sail, two feet longer yet roughly the same weight (min weight for the Minisail is 95lbs).
