The largest Nordhavn Owners Rendezvous ever got underway May 10 at Victoria International Marina on Vancouver Island, British Columbia. A record-setting number of Nordhavns and Nordhavn owners gathered for five days of education, camaraderie, food and fun. For many, the rendezvous served as a kick-off to cruising up to Alaska and the northwest Canadian Territories.


With 48 Nordhavns packed into the marina, the event marked the most Nordhavn yachts ever gathered in the same place, although not all who attended came by boat. In attendance were owners of 67 Nordhavns representing 16 different models, who mingled at dock parties and cocktail events, boat-hopped and attended two days of seminars.


“There are so many wonderful people that I have met with such interesting cruising backgrounds and stories,” said Jill Bernard, chairman of the rendezvous committee and owner of the Nordhavn 47 Slow Burn. “It’s been a bit of a mutual admiration society.”


The Rendezvous wrapped up May 14 following a distance pennant ceremony, a programthat rewards owners for miles traveled in their Nordhavns, and a prize giveaway.
