Mini Canada Place Sail erected on other side of globe!

Mini Canada Place sails erected on the other side of the globe!

Check out the large triangles of Canada Place teflon sail material being turned into this cool mini Canada Place Sail on virtually the other side of planet Earth!

Re-purposed tires were collected and submerged partially underground for circular seating under the sail which will now be used as an additional outside classroom and village meeting area, out of the hot African sun. Heavy rains and wind from the rainy season have proven tricky for our sail, as our first attempt could not stand up to the harsh elements, but this second attempt is using a longer, more deeply buried central stabilizing pole. It’s a fun challenge!
