Free Public Sails!

Every Sunday afternoon the Wooden Boat Center on Lake Union in downtown Seattle offers free public sails.  Along with 11 other grateful Sunday sailors, I went out in a historic 35′ oyster boat last week.  It was a spectacular day, and although the voyage was short, it was a delightful experience.  No experience necessary – the Center’s volunteers do all the work.  What a Seattle thing to do!

In the summertime, you have to arrive early, perhaps around 10 in the morning, to sign up in person – there was only room for 12 on each of the two sailboats.  Then volunteers rig the boats and the “crew” boards around 1 or 2 in the afternoon.  All Aboard!
