The minisprint had the sliding seat, the minisail did not have one. I don't know if there are any other differences between the two but I imagine Rupert would know if he is around

I believe the boat may be a "Tempo". Still widely sailed as a vintage class in Germany, under the name "Tempo Scrow".

So how does the Tempo compare to the Fireball in performance and handling? And why did it die out in SA (it is dead as a class, isn't it?) when it has the Sprog and Sonnet as feeder classes?

PS where's that pic - Saldanha at a wild guess?
