  • *Varies*
  • Moderate
  • Mileage: 35.0 nm

Depart from the Port of Edmonds on July 2nd.  Depart from Paulsbo on July 4th.  Return to Edmonds after the Kingston fireworks show on July 4th.

This is a 3-day, 2-night trip, though based on individual plans, crew can choose which legs to participate in.  I'll be leaving Edmonds on July 2nd to Paulsbo.  I'll be staying at Paulsbo on the 2nd and 3rd, probably anchored out or rafted up at anchor.  There is a fireworks show on the 3rd in Paulsbo.  Then on the 4th I'll head to Kingston for their fireworks, again anchoring out for the show.  I'll then return to Edmonds that night.   I'm willing to be flexible if crew want to do the day sailings or fireworks show evenings only.  There is room for a total of 3 to stay on the boat overnight, though the boat is snug.  I do snore, so you have been warned.  I will have a dingy for going ashore from anchor.  Email me to discuss logistics.

Required Equipment

Required Equipment

For Overnight

You will need a sleeping bag, preferably one that packs small.  Pack light but have clothes for proper weather.  There is limited storage on the boat, but the basic galley is there and I have a BBQ.  We can plan meals together if staying aboard, or just bring lunch for the day sails.

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
  • Knife on lanyard
  • Whistle on a lanyard
  • Food and drink
  • Headlamp or flashlight
