  • For Beginners (Getting Started Series)

Meet at the boat, Shilshole slip Q5, at 5:45PM. All boats racing start at 7:00PM. If there is a reasonable amount of wind we should be done in a couple hours.

This is very casual Friday evening racing, sponsored by the Sloop Tavern Yacht Club. There is no committee boat, and each boat records and reports their own finish time. 

I will have at least two or three of my regular crew, and students signing up will supplement for a total persons on board of around 7.

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
