AAUW Racine sponsored middle school girls in sailing classes at the Racine Yacht Club again this summer.
The sponsorship is part of AAUW’s commitment to STEM (science, technology, engineering and math).
The classes teach the girls to sail in a safe, fun environment; STEM is applied through sailing fundamentals, nautical terminology, knot tying, basic dinghy rigging, understanding how pulleys work on a boat, and how wind direction and wind speed affect the sails.
