Take Long Swimming Cruise in New “Body Sailing Yacht” (Jan, 1933)

Take Long Swimming Cruise in New “Body Sailing Yacht”

WANT to take a nice long swim without exerting any muscle power? Then hook yourself up to this new “Body Sailing Yacht” which has just been introduced in Germany. A special bucket board that straps around your body holds the mast upright, your carcass acting as the hull of this unique windjammer.

You have full sail equipment. You can tack, luff, and do anything else that a sailing ship can do except put out to sea on a year’s voyage. The photo at the left shows the inventor, Dr. Schoneman, of Berlin, taking a cruise in the Spree, which flows always through Germany.

    Windsurfing for the recumbent man.

    That’s a grim sport, if one has to use own carcass….

    Probably popular with the sharks, though Jarl.
