Level 1 SUP Class in Shilshole Marina & Marina Safety Tips

Shilshole Marina is a great place to find protected calm water for beginners who are still building their confidence. Nonetheless there are still hazards there such as tight passageways with moving power and sailboats who can back out out without notice.  Always yield right of way to all motorized boats.  Boats  don't have blinkers or back up sounds so keep an eye and and ear out for moving boats.  Slow or stop at each channel opening before proceeding and don't rest on boats or docks.  I tell my students to stay approx 10 feet from all boats and docks.

Here's a great group visiting from Maryland..
