Meet at the Elliott Bay Marina at slip C16. We will be leaving the slip no later than 6:30PM. There is a post-race party with free beer, wine and hot dogs, so there's no need to bring any refreshments. The race is on, rain or shine, so watch the weather and dress appropriately.

Don't be intimidated by the word "race." This is a fun race where the winners are drawn out of a hat, so no one will yell at you if you make a mistake.

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
