Kirk Brown has stepped up and will host the third weekend of May Westsail So Cal rendezvous at King Harbor, Redondo Beach, and the King Harbor Yacht Club.
More info to follow soon.
Here is the info from Bud's flyer
This year’s SoCal Rendezvous will be hosted by Kirk Brown, W32 Ostara, and held at King Harbor Yacht Club, Redondo Beach, CA. Please be aware that the space available for visiting YC cruises that weekend is limited to the guest dock which has 120' of available dock space with electricity and water. Depending on the number of boats attending, the Port Captain may require that you Med-tie or Side-tie to the dock, so please be prepared.
If you are not on the list of clubs that have reciprocal privileges with KHYC, you may belong to clubs with reciprocal privileges. Those boats may stay at the docks for 3 nights free of charge, but must fly their club burgee while at the docks, and the owner's club membership card must be shown at the time they sign in.
If you are not members of reciprocal Yacht Clubs, then the charge for your boats for an overnight stay is a minimum of $25 per night or $.50 per foot per night.
Attached is a welcome letter that explains the club, bar and galley hours of operation, where and how to sign in, as well as other information you will need to know.
Please contact our host, Kirk Brown, by email at 1CPTKIRK@msn.com or cell phone 951-313-3637 at least one week prior to your arrival with the name and number of your boat, and approximate arrival and departure times, so that he or the Port Captain can arrange to have someone available to meet you. If you have any questions regarding the club, please feel free to call the club manager.

Folks are free to roam the docks and visit the boats and renew old acquaintances or make new ones.

Kirk will be selling WOA merchandise on Saturday, so bring cash or checks — we aren’t set up for credit cards.
