There is a nominal parking fee, the payment directions are posted and you can pay electronically. Please arrive on-time, or a little early. Phone or text the skipper when you arrive, or if for any reason you will be late or need to cancel your participation. The Skippers (Dales) cell number is 425-480-4359.

Additional Notes: Please bring non-marking sole shoes, your personal floatation device (PFD) if you have one, and appropriate outerwear based on the days weather forecast. Be prepared for both cool temps, wind and rain, and, moderately warm weather. June is still a transition month and it is possible we could have highly variable weather conditions during the sail. You may bring any food that is “day sail boating compatible” (does not require heating, will not make a mess on deck) if you wish.
