Rendezvous 2019 – Ladysmith Maritime Society Docks


August 23 - 25 – which is Friday to Sunday. However, we always encourage anyone who can make it to arrive Thursday afternoon. The festivities start Friday afternoon and end after breakfast on Sunday morning.


Ladysmith Maritime Society Docks

Their website is: We have reserved 20 dock spaces. We have exclusive use of the covered area for Friday and Saturday. Moorage cost is $1.40 1st night, $1.10 after that*. Power - $5.00. Check in Time – 1:00 pm, Check Out Time – 12:00 noon. * $1.40 is for first night of the season; $1.10 for the rest of the current season.


Please make your reservations as soon as possible by calling the marina at Make sure you quote reservation code CCYC2019. There are only 5 dock spaces available as at April 8, so register soon! At the same time please email Catherine Russell: and advise her you have registered, so we know how many members and guests are coming. Please also advise the names of your guests, if you have any. This is VERY IMPORTANT, as we need to know this so we can order the correct amount of meat. It would be helpful to advise Catherine if you prefer Beef or Chicken, so we can advise the suppliers. Please include that information in your email to Catherine at The marina has a total of 20 spaces and will try to accommodate more if they can.

On Friday we have a BYOA & B (appetizer and beverage) get together around 1700 hrs. Dinner on own.

Saturday is boat visiting, and socializing in general. In the late afternoon we gather on a BYOB basis for a short meeting, and door prizes **, and 50/50 draw, before dinner. There are no appetizers for this evening.

We plan on having a “tech session” like last year, which proved to be very popular.

Further details will be provided, as we get closer to the event. Please also check the website for information.

There will be a draw for a $100 subsidy for moorage.

DINNERDinner will be semi potluck BUT your Association has arranged for caterers to deliver a BBQ’d prime rib roast and rotisserie chicken and potatoes as a hot base for the dinner so please keep that in mind when deciding what to bring. We also supply desert so please don’t provide that, coffee, milk and sugar. We encourage members to use their own dishes, including glasses, mugs, and cutlery, but we will have a small supply of paper plates, plastic cutlery and paper cups available.


The most important thing, besides coming and having fun, is to make those reservations ASAP as we expect the marina to be full so earlier is better than later. Please remember your volunteer committee members are boaters too. We like to get as much done re the Rendezvous by the middle of June as we are all out boating after that.

We look forward to seeing you there and having another great Rendezvous!!

** We ask everyone to donate a small prize. We will have two or three main door prizes, and hopefully, some commercial donations, but it is more fun if everyone gets something to take away. Nothing fancy, just some fun stuff.
