How Sailboats Sail

On Saturday May 14th, 6 children and their parents joined Instructor Jerry Crawford to learn about sailing. They experience maneuvering model sailboata across El Estero Lake.  Everyone had a chance to test their newly acquired skills when the El Estero Regatta begun!  They learned how to make a boat sail in the direction of the wind introduced to the terms into the wind, crosswind (which is the fastest way to sail) and downwind. A great class to take in conjunction with How Airplanes Fly.
