2006 Pacific Northwest Rendezvous


Save the date for the Annual Pacific North

Rendezvous 2006 in Poulsbo, WA

Labor Day Weekend *** September 1? 4, 2006

Hosted by Dave and Kay Minton
W32 #660 Gryphon

The date?s the same, the location is different. This will give the Westsail owners in the lower Puget Sound area a chance to attend and bring their boats. For those owners in the upper Puget Sound and BC areas, we hope you will be able to take the time off to bring your boats and attend. Otherwise, drive on down and enjoy the festivities.

Remember, if you volunteer to host a rendezvous, you can have it anywhere you want. In this case, it is at Gryphon?s homeport, and she is lonely without other Westsail boats around. Come and make her feel wanted.

Friday, September 1:
Arrival at South side of?E? Dock to register and check in. Maybe dinner at?JJ Fish House? right across from the pier?

Saturday, September 2
Coffee and Danish in the Poulsbo Marina Club House (on a floating barge at the head of the pier. We have reserved the space for the weekend.

Schedule your mini-survey with Bud Taplin from Worldcruiser Yacht Co.

11:30? 13:00 Potluck lunch on the pier or the Park adjacent to the pier (if available).

13:30 -17:00 (Tentative) meet at the Sons of Norway Hall or public library if available. Bring your pictures, stories, or lessons learned for the group to enjoy. Have your pictures loaded on a CD or VHS tape. We are trying to arrange for a CD overhead projector and a computer with a TV VCR\CD output.

18:00 Dinner at a local restaurant (to be chosen later).

Sunday, September 3:
Coffee and Danish on the pier or Club House.

10:30? 14:00 Trip to the Clear Water Casino by free shuttle bus. (Tentative) the Casino usually throws a great low cost brunch to promote new gamblers. We will check on it.

Bon Voyage all day.


Please contact Dave Minton at mintondc@adelphia.net if you plan to attend. We need an accurate count of how many boats will be coming and for what days, as soon as possible to ensure sufficient slips are available.

Send a check for the first night?s moorage of $20 for W 28/32?s and $25 for W 42/43?s to Dave Minton at 15980 N.E. Lindsey Lane, Poulsbo, WA 98370. Make the check out to Dave Minton. The Marina requires one group check so Dave will try to be the banker.
