Our 2010 Rendezvous was a banner event with 14 Westsails in attendance 1 W28, 10 W32, 2 W42 and 1 W43 plus another 9 WS owners. The longest voyage to attend was by Larry Waldrip and crew on Desiderata W32, a 3 day voyage uphill from Moss Landing, CA. Desiderata is the only known full yellow / orange hulled Westsail. Cruisers heading south to Mexico were Steve & Lulu Yoder, Sempre Sabado W28 and Keith & Kay Schardein, Chamisa #064 W42. Furthest traveled by any means or reason was James Templeton, owner of the Australian berthedNarwhal #68 W28. James said that he has owned Narwhal for many years and had never met another Westsailor – we were happy to introduce him to our owners.
A big thank you to our 2010 Vendors for making the event possible by the contributions of their time and raffle prizes.
