  • This film describes swimming, sailing and skiing using footage of the ski show at the New York World's Fair. A short ski lesson is given at the World's Fair site. Then, surfers at Daytona are featured. Scuba diving is next and the divers see a mermaid from Weeki Wachee. When they get back to the boat, they have a glass of orange juice before they take off their gear. Two springboard divers demonstrate technique. One of them is a champion. The other is a clown. An interview with Chris Sparks, a swimming coach, tells how orange juice is important for performance. Two young swimmers give testimony to orange juice. .Synchronized swimmers are shown under the end titles. Produced by McDavitt of Daytona Beach; sponsored by Florida Citrus Commission.
