Elliott Bay Marina, slip C16, at 6:15PM.

We'll leave the slip no later than 6:30, get the sails up and do a few maneuvers before the race starts at 7:05. FREE beer, wine and hot dogs to follow at the post-race party. Don't be intimidated by the word "race." This is a fun event, with the winners drawn out of a hat.

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
