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 Saturday June 22 at 9:55am. The session will begin promptly at 10:00am so if you are running late please call my cell at 206.334.7316. Park either on the street or in the spaces nearest the street as the rest of the parking requires a permit.  

Bring gear appropriate for the weather conditions.  Remember it's 10 degrees cooler on the water and if you don't have it you can't put it on!  Wear non-marking shoes and bring water and snacks for yourself or to share. 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 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
