Anytime I am able to “check in” on my smartphone from Roche Harbor Resort and Marina I am a happy man. The 2012 Puget Sound Grand Banks Rendezvous was the excuse this time for visiting one of my favorite places in the world.
The weather was great, the boats were fantastic and I had the pleasure of meeting some great people on some great boats!
In addition to the social aspect (an event that begins with a bocce ball tournament is going to be a good time!) and a cruise to a desirable destination, a current trend for many Rendezvous’ is to have some classes, speakers and/or seminars on the itinerary.
The PSGBO seminars included U.S. Customs agents who spoke about the latest “dos and don’ts” in border crossing, tips on crabbing and prawning, diesel engine maintenance, marine batteries and charging systems, and the latest from Grand Banks. Philbrooks Boatyard was one of the sponsors and Drew was on hand to answer questions about their services.
