Another Successful Year For The Catamaran Guru Rendezvous

In 2018, our friends at Catamaran Guru initiated the first annual All-Catamaran Rendezvous, drawing over 30 boats to join in for a couple of days of sailing, activities, socializing and fun. After such glowing success, the 2019 event, held May 26th – 29th attracted more Catamarans and over 100 excited sailors for the second annual Rendezvous in Abaco, Bahamas. North Sails Catamaran expert and Fort Lauderdale loft manager Bob Meagher attended the rendezvous to spend time with the fleet, assisting with on-boat inspections of sails, and delivering tips & tricks for getting the most out of these popular boats. Owners of Lagoons, Leopard, Prouts, and many more enjoyed a week of workshops, parties and camaraderie.

At the end of the week, Catamaran Guru leaders Stephen and Estelle Cockroft presented the Hopetown Junior Sailing Club with a generous donation of $2,000 in support of the new generation of sailors. To conclude the week, some boats lifted anchor from Marsh Harbor and headed to cooler climates in the North, while other planned to spend some quality time exploring the Bahamian waters before returning home to South Florida.
We couldn’t have asked for a more enjoyable week. Getting on board these fun boats, helping out with all aspects of the sails, and getting to know the sailors was a pleasure. Seeing people living their dream and exploring new waters is what it’s all about and we’re happy to be there to see it with them.
