Meet at gate at 1:00 pm

This is a training sail. We will sail around the Elliott Bay/Puget Sound area and practice tacks and jibes. If you are not a member of the current class, you are welcome to sign up and watch/help, but we will  be concentrating on cycling the current students through the various sailing stations.

Bring "finger food" to share if you wish, and your own drinks, but we will probably not have a lot of extra time to eat, so don't plan to cook anything or stop for a food break.

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
  • Knife on lanyard
  • Whistle on a lanyard
  • Food and drink
  • Headlamp or flashlight
