Physics on Board Dauntsey’s Jolie Brise

Published Friday 16th of October 2020 06:42:30 PM

A group of A level Physics students from Dauntsey’s has spent a day on board the school’s Tall Ship, Jolie Brise, measuring and analysing the forces in her rig and sails to determine how she stays upright and why she sails so fast. The trip formed part of their ‘Physics of Sport’ A level module.

Dan Darwell, teacher of Physics, said,

“Sailing on Jolie Brise was a brilliant way to bring the topic to life and perhaps the best ever Physics lesson!”
