Sailfest is a fun, FREE event hosted by Seattle Sailing Club (webpage HERE) with support from Sloop Tavern Yacht Club & Corinthian Yacht Club of Seattle. After racing, crews are welcome back to the promenade outside of Seattle Sailing Club at Shilshole Bay Marina for a fun community potluck with grilling, beverages, and more fun! In the spirit of building community, SSC will be supplying drinks and hotdogs. Every participating boat is asked to bring 1 or 2 potluck dishes to share. Come join the fun! We are also looking for crews to volunteer to help run the post-racing activities on the evenings of the 12th, 19th, and 26th. A big thank you to J/105 Creative & Avalanche for volunteering on the 1st night! Come join the fun!
Everyone is invited to participate - no experience required! We encourage boat owners in Shilshole to take their boat out to race, as well. This is an inclusive sailing community event!
An evening of fun sailboat races for every level of experience. After the races, participants are invited back to the promenade outside of Seattle Sailing Club for shore-side festivities, a potluck and beverages! Please plan to bring a dish to share after the on-the-water race!
