2021 Fall Rendezvous - Salt Spring Marina
Hope springs eternal .... While our Spring Rendezvous has been cancelled, we are tentatively planning the 2021 CS Fall Rendezvous at Ganges, specifically the Salt Spring Marina at the end of Ganges Harbour, near Moby's Pub.
E x t e n d e d by another day.
"Just when we're having fun we have to go!!"
We have also heard this about our past rendezvous, so we propose to lengthen the Fall Rendezvous by one full day.
We will keep you posted in the months ahead.
In the meantime are reserving space at the marina, and have a budget.
Our social committee will be working to plan a great rendezvous where we can share boat talk, socialize, and enjoy Salt Spring Island.
Recap of 2020 Fall Rendezvous at Ladysmith Community Marina
The Fall CS Rendezvous had a smaller turnout than usual, which was to be expected, given these difficult times.
However, the number of boaters proved to be a more manageable and safer number.
Safety protocols were in place, with social distancing on the dock, at the pub, and we even sanitized the bocce balls after each team played
