Meet at the top of P dock at Shilshole Bay Marina at 12:30pm.  We will sail for several hours and plan to be back to the dock between 5-5:30pm. 

Bring food for yourself as we will not be stopping for a raft-up.  If you want to bring food to share that's up to you but not required. 

Remember to always bring sailing gloves (or bike, work, climbing or other gloves), hat, sunglasses, sunscreen, NON-MARKING shoes, jacket and life jacket if you have one.

Everyone gets a turn at the helm!

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
  • Food and drink
