On November 3rd, AVID sailing stallions went on a sailing trip. It was a beautiful day, with the sun shining out and sadly, there wasn’t that much wind on that day. We made the best of it and sailed. Sailing isn’t the only thing we did. We learned different types of knots, worked on making our R.O.V. (Remote Operated Vehicle) have buoyancy, and sailed.

For our R.O.V. we first had to make the frame and add the propellers. After we added the propellers, we used pool noodles to make our R.O.V. float, but we needed to make sure it didn’t sink all the way and didn’t only stay on the surface.

Then we learned different knots. Sailers need to know how to make good knots fast and be able to untie them fast. Some knots we learned were the square knot, figure 8 knot, and bowline knot. Mr. Magnin from Emery School joined us to teach us knots, and we are glad he is now part of our group.

The last thing we did was sailing. It was very fun, on the boat they taught us things like how to find out where the wind is coming from, naming the different parts of the boat, and learning different ways to sail.
