The Southern California

Westsail Rendezvous 2013

Date: May 17- 19, 2013

Location: Oceanside, California

Host: Kirk Brown - s/v Ostara W32



Contact the Oceanside Harbormaster   (760) 435-4000  right away for dock space.   The cost is  $1.20 per foot per night.

You’ll need to provide your boat’s papers (registration or documentation), a copy of your insurance policy, and a signed transient slip agreement.   Kirk will email the slip agreement to anyone who needs it - that makes more sense than making a hundred copies when only six or eight boats may show up.


Be sure to tell them you’re part of the Westsail Owners Association.  The address is 1540 Harbor Drive North, Oceanside, CA  92054.


As always, the rendezvous is a very informal and casual event with activities based on the number of Westsailors present, their energy level, and the weather.  Our primary purpose is to renew old acquaintances, make new ones, tell almost true sea stories, and most of all, visit boats !


Your host for this year’s event is Kirk Brown of the Westsail 32 Ostara   The  schedule will include the following events:


FRIDAY ARRIVAL – May 17 – Arrival and tie up at Oceanside Harbor Marina.  Be sure to make your reservation ahead undefined there may or may not be slips available for surprise last-minute show-ups!  Throughout  the afternoon and evening, informal socializing on various boats and on the dock undefined snacks, drinks, and camaraderie.


SATURDAY DAY– May 18 – Coffee and pastries on the dock, followed by Bud’s mini-surveys, and visiting the boats all day long.


SATURDAY EVENING – Dinner will be at the Jolly Roger, located right by the guest slips, or possibly at the Oceanside Yacht Club, which is close by.  Announcement of the location will be made during the day on Saturday.  After dinner presention will be by Rick and Connie Hedrick reguarding their restoration and cruise to the South Pacific of Rhino W32 #410.


SUNDAY – May 19 – Coffee and potluck breakfast then cast off the dock lines and head for your homeport or wherever the wind may take you.   If some others are interested, perhaps a flotilla to Catalina, for those who can take a couple of days off of work.


Remember, you don’t have to be a Westsail owner to attend.  Owners of all of  the  Atkins/Archer/Double-ender types, and any other interested folks are invited to enjoy the camaraderie and see our beautiful boats.  Spread the word in your home ports !!
