IMPORTANT - Please read the information below prior to the session.

My boat, s/v Balance, is located at Shilshole Bay Marina - 7001 Seaview Ave NW, E Dock, Seattle, WA 98117. I’ll be meeting everyone at the E Dock gate @6:30 with a 7pm departure, returning 9pm. E Dock is located at the SOUTH END of the marina. Non-Permit parking is available in the first two rows next to the street. Street parking is also available.

Please email me, svbalance2022@gmail.com, to confirm you’ll be joining us.

STUFF Happens. If you have to cancel, please do so via email, svbalance2022@gmail.com no later than 24 hours prior to the Sail so someone else can join in. If you are running late the day of the sailing activity or last minute unable to attend, call me 206-660-0133.

NOTE: Space is limited. NO Show with no communication = Bad Karma!

Guests are encouraged to participate in all aspects of sailing Balance. Helming, tacking, sail trimming, etc. and I will advise as needed. OR, just sit back and relax watching the sunset.

Bring a water bottle along with snacks for yourself and, if you wish, items to share with the group.

I have a refrigerator, microwave, oven and food storage. Please pack items in a soft sided bag or backpack and refrain from bringing hard sided coolers as they take up space and are hard to store.

I have a limited supply of extra lifejackets so please bring your own if you have one. Sailing (or hiking/biking) gloves, sunglasses, hat, and sunscreen are always recommended. Please wear NON-MARKING shoes. Also, please note that it’s usually cooler on the water so bring a jacket.

The weather is predicted to be in the high 60s temperature range with moderate winds, chance of showers this time of year is always a possibility. So, hats and gloves seem like a good idea. Unless the weather is horrible this activity will meet. If it is cancelled, I will call you at the phone number you signed up with.

Please feel free to call me if you have any questions or concerns

 

Look forward to sailing with you,

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
