Welcome to SailNet.

The Flipper was a surprising good little boat. They were a small version of the Kite, and were meant to be a 1960's version of kid's modern single-handed trainer. They have enough sail area to be mildly entertaining without being hyper athletic boats to sail. They had full floatation and were self rescuing (which in the vernacular of the 1960's, meant that they could be righted if they capsized and sailed off without needing a tow to the beach to drain them.

Morro Bay is a lovely spot.
