2018 PNW Wauquiez Rendezvous

Photography by Lee Youngblood

Bill with Airstream presentation

   I've been a sailboat broker for ten years now, and finally got to sell a nice Wauquiez, Thanks Mike! This is the first time I got to come to the Rendezvous on a boat I helped to sell, what fun-yea! Thank you Bez and Ann Phyfe on the Centurion 42, Sweet Adeline! After our 2003 offshore trip to San Francisco with John & Lisa on Andiamo, I've come to as many of the RDVs as I could, starting back in 2004 in Oak Harbor (pre-digital). I've tried to get shots of the participants and their boats, and after Sam let me down from the mast, I've even got to race on some of fleet, again this year on Mike's BC Pretorien, Amantea, thanks Mike & crew, Nicole, Brian & Bez!

We had a good time checking out the boats as they landed - thanks Jim for always being there. Simply Splendid, the Centurion 32 made it down from Canada, with a sweet little Albin Ballad, Pagan. We had introductions, hors d'oeuvres, and a nice Dry Creek Vineyards wine tasting w/ Phylis pouring. Jeri should get an award for her enthusiastic introduction and problem solving, for her East Coast Centurion 40s, Lazy J.

We had a fun regatta on Saturday afternoon, with wind for the whole course, and current to make it interesting. Mike brought his Dutch Riverboat for the committee boat, Ken on Seeker got away from the fleet, avoiding the current, while we had fun with spinakers. Guy on Air Fare and Michael on Caelestis Sailed the long course. Steve managed the race, awards, and kept his Gladiateur, Black Rabbit ahead of half the Pretoriens. Saturday dinner presentation was by Bill and Janet, who sailed the Centurion 42 Airstream around the world in nine years, a great presentation. Bruce, with his nice Pilot Saloon 40, Ska'ana won the Best of Show", but it took his dinghy mods to impress Brandi & Colin on the Pretorien Artemis. Arctos, David & and Kelly's well prepared Pretorien is heading off cruising, not without fan fair and a fun prize from Ken who always impresses, with the smooth RDV organization. Mike Locatel, the Rendezvous sponsor, is the new North American Dealer for the Wauquiez line, and showed us pics and a brochure of the new boats coming. What a great rendezvous - I certainly had a good time, and took plenty of photos! Thanks all!  (Click on a image below for a larger image "slide show" - arrow keys work well.)
