Sunset & Full Moon Sails
In our 3 hour sunset sail, you will sail out on beautiful Puget Sound while watching the sun set or moon rise over the beautiful Olympic Mountain range. Take someone special out or enjoy a relaxing evening on the water with friends. No sailing experience is required, although this is a great opportunity to practice your skills on the helm and meet others in the sailing community. We will provide a licensed captain and life jackets. Food and drink may be brought onboard for a picnic on the water.

Q: How can I prepare for my Sunset/Full Moon Sail?
- Schedule your sail. Call or email the club to schedule your lesson.
- Pack your bag according to the marine weather forecast. We suggest bringing a waterproof outer shell, warm layers made with polyester, fleece, wool or merino wool (no cotton), non-slip/non-marking shoes and sunscreen. The National Oceanic and Atmospheric Administration’s (NOAA) website provides up-to-date weather forecasts for the Puget Sound area. At the bottom of the page, you will find the forecast for the Puget Sound and Hood Canal
Q: What kind of boat will we be on?
You will be on a sailboat larger than 30 feet such as a J/105 or a J/32.
Q: Is alcohol allowed onboard?
Due to safety reasons, alcohol is not permitted on our Sunset or Full Moon sails.
Q: Will we still sail if it is raining?
Yes, these events are rain or shine. The only time we will cancel a sail is if it is blowing 20kts+, thundering/lightning, low visibility (fog/smoke), or the minimum number of participants was not met for the event.
Q: What do I bring or wear?
Always check the weather and pack accordingly! Please do not wear black soled shoes on board. Bring a jacket, a warm layer, and a hat – even in the summer it can be very chilly on the water. In Summer, don’t forget to bring sunscreen! Food and non-alcoholic beverages are welcome on board.
