The Science: One of Tim’s passions involves physics and the study of wind dynamics – in the form of sailing, that is. A four-day trip navigating the waters of Key West ranks as one of his favorite expeditions, the science of which was no doubt enhanced by his other pastime – blending the perfect cocktail.
