Toryn Sundstrom

Mark your calendar for May 18 – 20 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 the perfect chance to kick off summer! Learn how to make a Turks’ Head knot for your ship’s wheel, try out microscopy and citizen science on the dock, join us for an informal paddle and picnic, enjoy the happy hours, the potluck, gift exchange, scavenger hunt, and more.

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 $1/foot/night. If you want to tie to the dock, contact Poet’s Cove ASAP to reserve at 250-629-2111. Spots are held until May 3, but they’re going fast. Anchoring is also available, there is a 10$ per person per night fee if you wish to use the resort facilities (pool, etc). As this is a floating dock, there is no power or water, and you’ll need to bring a dinghy (or make friends with your neighbouring boats!).

Cost: $10.00 per person (12 and under: $5). This includes 2 continental breakfasts (Sunday and Monday), knot tying, microscopy, goody bag for boats registered prior to May 3, and more.

Please RSVP before May 3 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.

NEW THIS YEAR: All boats that register with BCA through the form on the website or via email prior to May 3 will receive a goody bag when signing in at the Rendezvous.

For many more details, draft schedule, and registration, visit the website. We’re looking forward to seeing many BCA members at Poets Cove!
