You can see the boat from shore, as it's the third boat out from shore. We will return to the slip with a target time around 6:00PM, or as desired by  a consensus of those on board.

Bring warm clothes, dress in layers appropriate for the forecast weather. Please wear non-marking shoes, (tennis shoes are fine) finger food to share, and your own favorite beverage to drink. I do not expect that people share thier beverages unless they want to. 

This is a training sail, so we will be doing a lot of tacking and jibing. You are welcome to come along and just enjoy the sail if you already know the skills. If the weather is condusive and there is time, we can fly the spinnaker for a few minutes.

See  you there!
