Welcome to the Training Sail session of the Seattle Mountaineers Sailing Course!  Please read the information below prior to the session.

My boat is located at Shilshole Bay Marina - 7001 Seaview Ave NW, Seattle, WA 98117.  Meet at the top of "P" dock at Shilshole Bay Marina on Saturday, June 11 at 11:00am. Park either on the street or in the spaces nearest the street as the rest of the parking requires a permit.  The session will begin promptly at 11:00am so if  you are running late please call my cell at 206.334.7316. 

I will check the weather the week prior and give you and update on whether we will go out or not. Remember to bring rain gear and wear non-marking shoes. Unless the weather is horrible this activity will meet. If it is cancelled, I will call you at the phone number you signed up with.

The session will potentially last until 5-6 pm as we may raft-up with Blue Fin for lunch.  Feel free to bring either your own lunch or items you want to share with others.  Definitely bring a water bottle and snacks for yourself. 

See you Saturday, June 11 and please reach out 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
  • Whistle on a lanyard
  • Food and drink
