    Novel winter sport: ice skaters strap sails to their backs.

    Stockholm, Sweden.

    'Skate sailing' has become so popular that it rivals ice-yachting in the 'City of Bridges'.

    M/S of a frozen lake, ice skaters glide towards the camera, each of them has a large canvas sail strapped to their back. L/S of the sail skaters speeding around the lake, one has fallen and slides along on top of his sail. Various shots of the sail skaters, there are several large houses on the far side of the lake.
