Meet at the Port of Edmonds at 7:00 PM Friday night.

This is a weekend trip with several options.  For those staying aboard, looking for 1-3 max crew.  Note that this will be snug bunking quarters, and I snore.  You don't have stay on the boat the whole time, you can make arrangements on shore if you wish.  Here is my plan:  I'm going to sail from the Port of Edmonds Friday evening to the Bell Street Pier downtown.  Saturday afternoon is The Leukemia Cup Regatta which we'll race in, but not competitively.  Please consider donating to the cause if you're going to sail in the regatta.  There is a party after ward and we'll stay the night at the Elliott Bay Marina.  Sunday we'll return to Edmonds.  I have some non-sailing things to do Saturday morning and Sunday before returning, so you'll have some free time.  Also, if you want to work it out, you can hop on and hop off at a stop.  This is flexible, so drop me an email and we'll try to work something out.
