Shilshole Marina, Slip Q-5

Meet at noon, should be back in a couple hours, say around 2:00

Just enjoy a beautiful spring day on the water in Seattle

The weather is looking great for Saturday.  How about taking the students out for a quick sail around Shilshole Bay?

Looking for two or three experienced mountaineer sailors that would like to help with an initial practice sail for an hour or so.

The Sailing Essentials

Don’t leave the dock without these items! They make sailing safer for you and your crewmates. As a carrier, use a soft duffel bag for easy stowing without metal buckles that can scratch woodwork.

  • Non-skid deck shoes (or sea boots) with non-marking soles.
  • Heavy-duty gloves (preferably leather) for line handling (fingertips cut off is OK).
  • Warm clothing head to foot (Note: The ambient temperature on the water is usually lower than on land).
  • Foul-weather gear
  • Sunglasses
  • Sunscreen
  • Knife on lanyard
  • Whistle on a lanyard
  • Food and drink
  • Headlamp or flashlight
