We'll meet at Shilshole marina dock gate "B" at 6pm.  We'll get Rhythm ready to sail and should head out to the Sound by 6:30pm, we'll sail for a couple of hours and should be back on the dock by 8:30pm or so.

We will keep an eye on the weather, and I'll be in contact several days before to confirm this trip is a go. 

Please plan on bringing clothing as though you were heading up into the Cascades (layers for cool, wind, and rain).  Also, bring sun protection such as hats, sun glasses and sun screen.  Rhythm has plenty of float vests, but if you have one that you like feel free to bring it along.  Shoes need to be non-marking.
