Seattles Center for Wooden Boats has been helping newbie sailors get their sea legs for more than 25 years by way of all types of boat rentals and, even better, its free Sunday Public Sail program.

These rain-or-shine, skipper-led voyages take passengers around Lake Union on various vessels. Select a waterborne journey powered by sail, steam, electricity, oars or paddles. The sign-up sheet is first come, first served, so arrive early sign-up begins at 10 a.m. There are no age restrictions; boat capacities range from four persons to 15.
