Meet at the boat; Shilshole, slip Q-5 at 11:00AM, ready to leave.

This is a training sail for the current class, but you can come along and watch. After everyone gets a chance to drive and crew while we do a few tacks and jibes, we will sail across the sound to Port Madison to meet up with 3 or 4 other sail boats and have a floating picnic. Bring food to share and your own drinks. We will return to the dock by 5:00pm, or earlier if people need to be back in town.

Looking for Mountaineers sailing badge holders who would like to brush up their skills. We will do tacking and jibing drills and practice on technique. 

Bring whatever you want to eat or drink. Finger food that may be shared is best.
