Sailing

 

What is a typical Friday for me?

Our classroom, where we start our day before sailing, overlooks the harbor. The first segment is about 45 minutes. After the lesson, we go out and play a game on the lawn. So far, we have played Banana Tag, Red Light, Green Light and Sharks and Minnows.

After lunch, there is an experiment. Last week, we did Mentos and Coke. If you would like to watch somebody drink Coke while eating Mentos, click here. Finally, we start to sail

We kayak if the winds aren’t right for sailing. After about 2 ½ hours of sailing or kayaking, class is over. Sailing is very fun!
