Students Learn Sailing Skills


Classroom highlights: ACHS

In August, ACHS PE teacher, Gregg Henning, took the Adventure Education classes to the Racine Yacht Club to learn sailing skills. The students learned the basic skills of sailing on the waters of Lake Michigan. All of the students were introduced to the skippers of their boat for the day, and went through a safety meeting prior to leaving for the water. Each student had the opportunity to drive, raise and lower sails, trim the sails and learn about the physics of how sailboats work. After a beautiful day on the water, the class got to enjoy a wonderful lunch overlooking Lake Michigan prior to returning back to ACHS.
