DAY SAILING WITH SHIP 529
Weather Forecast: Weather Channel.
Wind Summary: NOAA P.O.R.T.S
The Timberwolf patrol from Troop 29 will be going out for a day sail on Cheng Ho, with Ship crewing taking Chantey out.
There are only a couple items most of us bring on a day sail. Most people bring a water bottle, since we don't always have our water tanks filled (depending on the time of year) and it is not always convienent to go below to get water. Both boats have an ice chest for keeping beverages and lunches cool. Depending on the weather, a light to medium jacket that repels water is always a good choice. This will usually fit in a small duffel bag, which makes it easy to collect yourself when we return to port.
Since this is Labor Day weekend, we will not be stopping in Shoreline Village, so everyone should bring their own lunches, snacks, and beverages for the entire trip.
Please remember to bring sunscreen, sunglasses, and a hat. It will be very warm, and there is a lot of glare on a boat (and especially the water) and all three of these are needed. Again, ask any of our Crew members for some advice.
