  • Easy

Meet at the boat, Shilshole, slip Q5 at 5:30PM.  Our start is at 6:20, the race is sponsored by STYC.

Join 3 or 4 other members of my crew as we compete in the 3rd race of the Ballard Cup III. The race usually takes about 1-1/2 hours, depending upon the wind. I rated this as easy, but we won't have time to do much teaching, as we will jump right into the race.

Bring finger food to share, and whatever you want to drink for yourself, but we probably won't have much time to eat until the race is over, so go on the light/quick side.

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
