Opportunity for you! Be the Presentation Coordinator for the Annual Whitby-Brewer Rendezvous. Recruit an external speaker (or two) on a topic you think will interest the Whitby-Brewer owners. Most people who come to the Rendezvous have something to share, ranging from full hour-long presentations on a major boat project to a 10-minute discussion question on a current boat issue. Those sharing discussions and how-to presentations are the substance of the Rendezvous, along with general camaraderie, of course! The content portion of the program schedule runs about 11 hours over two days, punctuated by great food from the West River Sailing Club’s staff caterer, Real Food.

If you are interested, reply to Cindy Ann (use the Contact Us link at the top of this page)

Please complete this very short survey so we can determine if we have enough interest to hold the event. It’s a great time to meet other Whitby-Brewer enthusiasts and learn about your boat systems.

The Rendezvous will be held 2 October - 4 October, at the West River Sailing club in Galesville MD. The Annapolis Sail Show starts the 5th, so you’ll be all boat-excited before you go look at all the cool new toys. Last year’s event cost about $140 per person and included dinner on Monday, and 3 meals Tuesday and Wednesday. Dockage is $15 for the whole event.

Some important notes for this year’s Rendezvous:

Tuesday night dinner is extended to include local folks who want to come socialize and see our boats (members of the WRSC and local Whitby-Brewer enthusiasts who are not able to take off weekdays to attend the Rendezvous, etc.). And. PRIZES.

Monday night dinner will probably be optional. Registration forms with detailed cost information will be out by August 1st.

For those of you planning come to the Rendezvous and need a place to stay, as far as I know, Pirate’s Cove (next door at 410-867-2300) has only 2 rooms on hold for us. You must speak to Cheryl and tell her you are with the Whitby group. She was supposed to send me a passphrase, but you can tell her she didn't send it yet.

Call for presentations!!

The Annual Rendezvous will be Oct 2-4, and it is a cooperative affair. Shared effort is it's own reward, as any community group will attest. Specifically, we need folks to step up and share experiences and areas of expertise in the form of presentations. You don't have to be a professional speaker. Topics can be general boating information (safety, navigation, provisioning), boat-specific maintenance or upgrades; basically anything you want to share about your Whitby-Brewer boat.

We also enjoy hearing from representatives from marine industry groups. If you have a topic or speaker in mind, please let me know and I'd be glad to coordinate. I have a surveyor lined up for Tuesday, but would like one more outside speaker for Wednesday.

Fellow Whitby-Brewer enthusiasts,

Notes:
Monday night dinner is optional, appetizers are potluck.
Tuesday night dinner is extended to include local folks who want to come socialize and see our boats (members of the WRSC and local Whitby-Brewer enthusiasts who are not able to take off weekdays to attend the Rendezvous). There will be a separate ticket process for those folks to pay for their dinner. We’ll send it out through WRSC, our FB group and the Getting Together Forum on the WBS site. There will be a drawing after dinner for some Sailrite gear.
Early boats are asked to anchor out until Monday, so the Club members can use the facilities.
Optional things to bring:
Boat cards
There will be a group discussion on weather: applications, sites and other information sources. Bring your knowledge to share.
A small appetizer to share for Happy Hour, for either Monday or Wednesday.

WRSC Rules:
No camping allowed (RVs, campers, tents) on the grounds.
All alcoholic beverages must be purchased from the WRSC; no “outside” alcoholic beverages may be consumed on the WRSC site (except on your own boat).
