FireBall got the whole family into sailing. We sail on Lake Winnebago in Wisconsin hailing from the marina at High Cliff State Park. From parking lot to sails up takes on;y about ten minutes. Our grandson Colin who turns three on January 8 has really taken to sailing and will be an "old salt" while still very young. Our extended family is growing and we need a larger boat so Fireball needs a new home.
