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. The docks are in alphabetical order with “A” at the south end and “V” at the north end.  It’s a long walk from “A” to “P” so park near “P” dock. 

Meet at the top of "P" dock at Shilshole Bay Marina on Sunday, June 4 at 9:55am. 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 10:00am so if you are running late please call my cell at 206.334.7316. 

Bring rain gear and you MUST 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 5-6pm as there are several Mountaineer Skippers doing sails on the same day. Boats in similar areas will connect for a lunch raft-up so feel free to bring either your own lunch or items you want to share with others.  I plan on joining the raft-up so please plan accordingly.  Definitely bring a water bottle and snacks for yourself. 

 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).
  • Gear for inclement weather in a soft sided bag
  • Sunglasses
  • Sunscreen
  • Food and drink
