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

Let's meet at the boat at 6:00PM, we will go over a quick safety briefing, then go out and practice tacks, jibes, points of sail, sail trim, and just have a nice evening on the water.

Bring finger food you are willing to share, and whatever you would like to drink for yourself.

Dress for the weather, in layers, and remeber it is usually cooler on the water. We will be back to the dock around sunset (9:00)

  • 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

  • Knife on lanyard
  • Whistle on a lanyard
  • Food and drink
