  • For Beginners (Getting Started Series)

Meet at the boat, Shilshole Q-5 at noon. We will go out and hone our sailing skills, from fundamentals to the finer points of trim and crew work. 

This is looking like the last warm day of the year, so lets go spend it on the water.

Join part of my regular racing crew for a day on the water. We can sail around the bay, maybe find another boat or two to sail with, or just practice our skills and enjoy a nice afternoon sailing around. 

Bring finger food to share,  and whatever you want to drink for yourself. We can stay out as long as we wish, but I would suggest returning to the dock around 4-ish.

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
