Wind... and Sailing






We have started our Inquiry into Wind Power. One of the things we looked at this week to get an understanding of how wind is exciting and relevant to us is an optimist sailing boat. Thanks very much to Glen Stanley and Worser Bay Yacht Club for loaning it to us this week. We looked at what the parts of the optimist are called, and wondered how they work and how the yacht harnesses the power of the wind to make it move.

We're looking forward to our walk to see the wind sculptures along Cobham Drive tomorrow!
