OutdoorUW Watersports AM 194 v2
Have you ever wondered exactly how a sailboat works? How is it possible to sail into the wind? Which forces cause a sailboat to move and which forces slow it down? In this seminar, we will dive into the physics of sailing, starting from the basics and moving our way through discussions of force balancing and fluid flow. No math or physics background is needed.
Our Winter Sailing Seminars occur weekly and cover a variety of nautical topics. The seminars are open to the community and sailing club membership is not required.
This year we ask participants to bring at least one non-perishable item per seminar to be donated to the Lussier Community Education Center. Most needed items include: olive oil, vegetable oil, maple syrup, sugar, flour, jelly/jam, pancake mix, paper towels, toilet paper, & baby wipes. Get more ideas from their Food Pantry Donation Wish List.
Location: Check the Today in the Union website or the digital signs in Memorial Union on the day of the lesson. Note that the event start time may appear earlier on the TITU listing but will begin at the time shown here.
