Meet at slip C16 at the Elliott Bay Marina. We leave the dock no later than 6:30, so try and be there by 6.

This is a fun race where the winner is drawn out of a hat, so don't be intimidated by the word "race." No one will yell at you if you screw up. The race is over by 8:30 with free hot dogs, beer, and wine at the after-race party. It's a great way to spend a Thursday night cruising around Elliott Bay.

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
