The model shows what happened to the Vasa. August 10, 1628, the Vasa makes sail in a light breeze. A few hundred meters out, the Vasa heels over for a light squall, but rights herself again. Another squall causes her to list heavily and takein water through the gunports. Off the island of Beckholmen, the ship capsizes. About fifty people drown with the Vasa sinks "sails set, flags flying and all".
