Frequently Asked Questions


How does the waitlist work?

Your name will be added to a first-come, first-serve sequence by registering for the waitlist. Boaters will be contacted if a space opens up on the trip they would like to register for.

How much do rendezvous cost?

It is FREE to register and attend a rendezvous, unless otherwise indicated. Boaters are responsible for paying for things such as fuel for their boat, food that is outside our scheduled meals (BBQ's and reception), and any mechanical issues that may arise along the way.


This year we will be taking deposits for the Killarney trip which will cover your slip fees. Please see registration for more information.

What can I expect on the trips?

Each trip has various events. Please refer to the event landing page for more details. Events include things such as BBQs, potlucks, contests, and more!


How many people can come on the trip with me?

You are welcome to bring as many guests as you would like. We ask that you provide a rough number of guests at registration to help us better prepare for events such as the BBQs or receptions, ensuring we have ample food and provisions.

What should I bring on the trip?

It is advised to bring the following items on your trip:

  1. Spare parts and tools (don't for get the oil filter wrench)
  2. Charts/Ports guide
  3. Up to date GPS
  4. Handheld VHF
  5. First aid kit
  6. 100’ tow line. (Even if your dinghy is on a davit it could break and you may have to tow it.)
  7. Binoculars
  8. Life jackets (enough for all guests on your boat)
  9. Know how to identify things like carbon monoxide. What it is and how to deal with it and how to prevent it.
  10. Shore power cheaters. (Extra length of shore power cords)
  11. Depending on your boats range, additional fuel in Gerry cans
  12. Ensure your anchor has a safety on it.
  13. Medication such as Benadryl, Gravol, etc.


Is there anything I can do to prepare?

There are three things that are a must when preparing for a rendezvous.

  1. You need to have your batteries tested. Even though you may have many batteries; they are only as strong as the weakest one. By ensuring the batteries are strong you eliminate equipment such as toilets and water pumps to fail.
  2. Fuel filters. Fuel filters take contaminates out of your fuel. This could be water or dirt in your tank.
  3. Impellers. The impellers enable your engines including your generator to cool properly and in turn not fail.
  4. Have your marina perform a once over on your boat mechanically.  

For any trip you do not want to rely on any destination having proper parts for your boat should one fail. Have your marina set you up with a parts kit specific for your boat. This could includes oils, impeller, water filters, bilge pump. Along with this check your safety gear including flares, first aid.
