Meet at the boat at 5:30PM, Shilshole slip Q5. 

If we do the race, it starts at 7:00PM

Let's meet at the boat at 5:30 and spend about 1/2 hour plotting a course. We might use the course for the race sponsored by STYC:

I propose that we try to predict how long it will take us to sail the course, and which way to go to sail the course in the fastest manner.

If the wind does not coooperate, or the crew wishes to do something else, we can change our plans when we get to the boat. 

After the race we can head back in, or just sail around for a while and debrief.

Bring finger food to share after the race, but go easy - we probably wont have much time during the race itself to eat. Bring whatever you wish to drink for yourself (no need to share).

Let's go see how well we can do at predicting our time aroudn the course, guessing our speeds based on the wind and currents at the time.
