Meet at the boat, Shilshole, slip Q-5 at 5:30PM, ready to leave.

Looking for 1 or 2 Mountaineers sailing badge holders who would like to supplement the rest of my regular crew as we race in the Ballard Cup event sponsored by the Sloop Tavern Yacht Club. This is a real race with over 60 boats registered. We will be flying the spinnaker, and are usually back around 8:30pm or so.

Bring whatever you want to eat or drink, but remember we will be racing, so there will not be a lot of time to eat. Food may be shared if we have time or after the race, depending on the wind.

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
