Meet at the boat:  Shilshole slip Q-5, at 6:00PM

We will meet at the boat, and spend about 1/2 hour plotting a course. After that we will go out in the boat and see how good our course plotting of time, course and distance are. I would propose motoring one leg using speed and compass course, and sail another - assuming wind and time allows. Let's go see how well we can do without a GPS to help us!

Afterwards we can head back or just sail around and debrief. 


Bring finger foods to share if you desire, 

Bring whatever you wish to drink for yourself.

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
