We'll meet at the boat moored in the Elliott Bay Marina at 11 AM for a sail and should be back 5-ish.

The boat is a 36' Catalina moored in the Elliott Bay Marina on the " D " dock in slip " 54 ".  ( D-54 ).

Meeting time is 11AM and should return 5-ish. Bring a lunch and beverage of your choice.

Please wear soft soled shoes.  The " D " gate is the 2nd gate from the far end of the parking lot. Park in the " guest parking " spaces up against the street or on the street.

Bring your sail sign off sheets.   The restroom is in the building at the end of the parking lot. It uses the same key pad code to enter as the gate to the dock.  That being  9568.
