Rendezvous

READ ABOUT OUR 2022 EVENTS FOR MORE FUN

All sailors — past, present, and future — are invited to join our Salty Dawg Rendezvous Events. These events are a great way for Dawgs to learn from seasoned Dawgs and have a great time.  As always, our volunteers are terrific. They make the Rendezvous Events fun and informative for everyone who attends.  These are the events that we do in a typical year, and dates are provided for most.  Check back here and on the calendar to see which of these we will be able to hold this atypical year.  If you would like to plan and host a Rendezvous Event, click here.
