Community Sailing Center

Thank you so much for supporting me in taking your children to the Community Sailing Center!  We had one of our most memorable experiences together!  My lessons on erosion and weathering and landslides paid off as we noticed the erosion along the lake, the causes of the erosion and the human structures that have been put in place to slow down the erosion!  We saw the engineering that has gone into planning the Burlington Bike Path and Waterfront Park so that water can be spread out, soaked up and slowed down.  These structures keep our lake healthy, make the area beautiful and most importantly slow down erosion along the lake front!  Each of us spent about 30 minutes on a sailboat and had a mini tour of the lake!  We learned important sailing vocabulary like puff and tacking.  We showed our gratitude to Morgan, Dana and Mark by writing thank you notes this afternoon.  We also showed our chaperones gratitude for joining us!  Thank you notes coming home to you! Thank you Sarah, Lisa, Christi, Katie, Heather and Laura! Lastly we wrote memory pages about our trip!  Our illustrations were beautiful and our writing so neat and thoughtful!
