Meet at the boat; Shilshole, slip Q-5 at 5:30PM, ready to leave.


This is a training sail for students of the current (2018) class. We learn and practice tacking, jibing, and other items learned in the class. We will rotate through the positions so each student will have a chance to learn the various duty stations.

Bring food to share and your own drinks. We will return to the dock by dark or around 8:00. Please be on time - you do not want to hold back your fellow classmates.  :-) You can see the boat from the boardwalk, she is about the third boat out. Holler at me, or call if I don't see you.

  • 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
