Rendezvous June 2016 - Ganges

Here we are! Ganges Marina June 10 - 12, 2016

7 boats in attendance;  No Limits (Nordhaven) Molly Bloom, Kipper, Harmony 11, Katzenjammer, Puffin, Daniel K (sailboat from Seattle)
This rendezvous was organized by Irene and Dave of No Limits (former owners of a Fisher 37) Thank you for your hard work on this successful gathering.  
Friday night rain stopped just in time for all to enjoy a perfect Happy Hour/ Appies/ Potluck....could be our most delicious assortment of food ever!

The HAT!  all new Fisher ball cap style hats....a must have for every fisher owner, sold out fast.  Watch for the next order.

True to tradition all sailors drifted back to their boats with lights out before dark!

Saturday was market day and sharing boat updates and modifications.....always interesting.  Saturday evening was a no host dinner at a local restaurant.  Despite the chaotic venue we were able to hold another most interesting AGM.  Thank you Commodore Don for your patience.

Early departures on Sunday morning for some hardy sailors.....until next time fellow foggers!

Rendezvous June 2016

We are now confirmed - arriving Friday, June 10, departing Sunday, June 12.  Each attendee must book their own reservation with the Ganges Marina under 'FOG'. The Marina will want a credit card to reserve the spot.  The reservations must be made by May 26th or space cannot be guaranteed. If we have more than 10 boats we get a group discount, otherwise regular rates apply. ($1.35 per foot + $5 for power per night) 

We have requested that we have the 'party float'.  No guarantees but they will try to accommodate.  If weather does not cooperate, hopefully one of the larger Fishers can host the Friday night appy/social.

If there are any folks attending without a boat here are a few choices for accommodation
    Salt Spring Inn 
    The Harbour House 
    Hastings House

Friday night appys/social around 5pm on the dock.  

Saturday, the market on your own. 
A fun wine tasting at the dock around 4 pm on the float (if we have it?) 
Dinner/ AGM at the Oystercatcher at 6 pm. 

Sunday am could be coffee on the dock if the interest is there.

Here is where it is!

Rendezvous 2015

A gathering of Fishers took place at Roche Harbor on June 19 - 21, 2015.  Again we were small in numbers but big in fun!

This Rendezvous included a very special event that had our members taking part in a re-naming ceremony for a 32 foot Cat Fisher (won't use the old name here, just in may remember the old boat did have her share of luck).  Not a detail was missed in this unique ceremony -

All attendees witness to the ceremony

Our Commadore reading the un-naming ceremony, all reference to the old name must be removed from the boat.

The sacrifice to Neptune and acknowledgement to the winds, North, South, East, West

  Part two the re-naming and christening!

newly named and freshly painted and polished..............

Pre-dinner songs accompanied by Steve and Nan on the Yuks 

Saturday night dinner followed by a short AGM

The warmish sunshine allowed the bravest of us to take an afternoon dip in the pool and there were many dock walks to compare vessels, Fishers and others.  A few dinghy rides and exploring the shore and resort filled in our free time. 

It's farewell for another year to this special group of Fisher folks.
