The Science of Sailing

We’ve teamed up with the Pacific Science Center to create a week of fun, science-filled sailing! Delve into the math and physics behind sailing and boat design by spending the mornings at the Science Center building model boats and conducting experiments. In the afternoons, we’ll walk to the Center for Wooden Boats to spend the rest of the day sailing on Lake Union in our El Toro fleet.
