For the second year, Mission Bay Aquatic Center will be volunteering in the US Sailing Education Zone at the Extreme Sailing Series San Diego event from October 18 to October 21. In the US Sailing Education Zone, MBAC will join a long list of organizations whose goal is to inspire the next generation to consider STEM fields through fun, educational, and hands-on activities.
The Extreme Sailing Series San Diego is an exciting, free, world-class event coming to the waters of San Diego Bay. Established in 2007, the Extreme Sailing Series is the original Stadium Racing sailing circuit designed for spectators, delivering high-performance action close to shore and putting guests at the heart of the excitement. Attracting some of the world’s top sailors, racing the hydro-foiling GC32 catamarans on short courses, the global circuit spans the Middle East, Asia, Europe and the Americas. The Extreme Sailing Series also delivers a unique and memorable VIP experience, giving guests the opportunity to race on board the high-speed boats in the guest sailor spot.
The US Sailing Education Zone will provide fun learning activities for youth patrons as part of the US Sailing Reach initiative for STEM education and sport outreach. Through interactive and hands-on activities, children will have the opportunity to learn about science, technology, engineering and mathematics through the sport of sailing.
Bring out the entire family to this ‘extreme’ly fun-filled day at the bay. Look for us in the US Sailing Education Zone and come build and race your own sailboats, among other activities. We can’t wait to share the power of STEM and sailing with you.
