Meet at Goats Do Roam, Breakwater Marina, by 12 noon.  

Breakwater marina is on N Waterfront Drive, near the Point Defiance ferry terminal.  See parking notes below.

Park in the lot signed "Marina Parking" off of N Pearl St, just before the toll both for the Point Defiance ferry line.  Walk down to the water, turn right and look for the Breakwater Marina office building.  Just before the building, head down the ramp to your left.  If the gate is closed, call either Mark at 253.820.7655 or Dana at 206.218.5555 and we will come let you in.

If the gate is open, walk down the ramp, past the restrooms (great time to use them...) and turn right.  The boat is on your right just past the repair shop.

Make sure and take a look at the "11 Sailing Essentials" on our class web page and to check a weather forecast so you can dress appropriately.  It always feels a little cooler on the water.

If you have your own PFD, please bring it.  There are a couple on the boat but your own will be more comfortable.

Make sure and bring a little food if you haven't had lunch, plus water.

Any questions, please call either Dana or Mark.
