May Rendezvous: A Knotty Good Time

Poet's Cove Floating Dock, Bedwell Harbour, Pender Island

19 May 2018 4pm to 21 May 2018 11am

Members $5 / Non-Members $5

Mark your calendar for May 19 – 21 for the May Rendezvous at Poet’s Cove, Pender Island! Arrive Friday evening or anytime Saturday before Happy Hour, when we get off to our official start at 4pm.

Come for the fun, the food, the camaraderie, and a knotty good time! Try your hand at creating a Celtic mat, work with patterns to create intricate Turks Head knots, and view knotting displays. There will also be a chance to get involved with microscopy on the dock thanks to Elaine Humphrey, and many more activities; details to come.

We’ll have the floating dock again this year as our Rendezvous base. There are limited spaces along the dock for boats; the fee is $1/foot/night. If you want to tie to the dock, contact Poet’s Cove to reserve at 250-629-2111. Spots are held until May 1. Please quote group code “M-BW18” or “Bluewater Cruising” when you reserve. Anchoring is also available; Poet’s Cove charges $10 per person per night if you wish to use the resort facilities (pool, etc).

Gift exchange: Each boat that chooses to participate must bring a new wrapped item and we will draw numbers to choose your gift – like you have probably done at work at Christmas time. Stealing will be allowed – but only twice.  The item can be anything you like as long as it is new – re-gifting is okay – it can be something useful or nautical or funny or containing alcohol – however it must be new.  Email us if you have any questions.

Cost: $5.00 per person. Please RSVP before May 11 via the website or email Corinne with your boat name and expected number of crew so we can plan for food and activities. Pay, register, and sign your liability form when you arrive.

Anticipate being asked to help out if you tie up … or anchor out!
