Shilshole Marina Dock E-19

Meet at the gate at 1:00pm

As this is an overnight trip, in addition to the typical gear you'd bring for a sail such as multiple layers (for wind, rain and temps), sun protection (glasses, hat, sunscreen), non-scuffing footwear, and a personal PFD if you own one, . . .

Crew should also bring a sleeping bag & pillow, and various other personal items to ensure your comfort for a multi-day sailing trip.  

We'll plan a menu and will share responsibilities for food purchase / prep. 

Also, we'll keep an eye on the weather, although in July there are much better odds for pleasant conditions.  We'll make a go / no go call several days before the trip.

Although we will be anchoring out, we will take a dinghy in case anyone wants to go to shore.
