Meet at Des Moines Marina at the "L" dock gate at 10am on Saturday, May 18th.  Call or text me at 206-380-7512 if you are waiting at the locked gate and I will come get you.  

Park in any space that is NOT designated as "Tenant Parking."

Please bring your own PDF or send me a note that you will need one.  Also bring snacks and water for yourself during the sail.  Dress appropriately for the weather conditions and remember that it is 10 degrees cooler on the water than on land.  We will sail in any weather condition unless the wind gusts are considered unsafe.  Always bring more clothes that you think you will need to stay warm and dry.  

We will prepare the boat and head out for a sail that will last approximately three hours.  

Email me if you have questions:

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
