Sailboat race: Join me and supplement my crew for one of the "Ballard Cup" races in Shileshole bay.

Meet at the boat; Shilshole, slip Q5 at 5:30PM. Our start is at 6:15, so don't be late. The race is sponsored by Sloop Tavern Yacht Club. I chose easy, but we will not have a lot of time to learn - we will jump right into the race. 

Join 3 or 4 other members of my regular crew as we compete in the first of the Ballard Cup III races. The races usually take about 1 1/2 hours, depending on the wind, and we should be back in by 9:00. Bring what you would like to eat or drink, but we probably won't have much time to eat during the race.

  • 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
