    Ice skating with sails - like windsurfing on ice.

    L/S of what at first look like sailing boats on a lake. Closer view reveals them to be ice skaters holding strange sails as they skate.

    They skate towards the camera and one falls over. Intertitle informs that this is in North America. Other views of the skaters as they speed past. We are shown what happens when it gets very windy - one of the skaters struggles with their sail and others fall over.
