  • Easy/Moderate
  • Easy
  • Mileage: 10.0 nm
  • Maximum Wind: 15 kts
  • Maximum Waves: 1 ft

We will meet at "B" Gate on the South end of Shilshole Bay Marina at 11am, and we should be back on the dock before 4pm.  On the Thursday before, I will email an update on the trip based on the weather forecast.  

My intent is to offer a comfortable and enjoyable Saturday mid-day sail.  If the wind is forecast consistently greater than 15 knots with gusts at or above 20 knots I will likely cancel.  Everyone on the trip will be able to drive the boat, work the sheets, and fully participate in decisions on where and how we go.

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
