Others attending the event were Wanita Gray and Larry Meade, Phil Hawkins and Brenda Clark, Dave and Patti Kent, along with Becky Long and Jerry Knop.

Much "boat talk" and boat tours took place during the day long activities. The day’s events culminated in a social hour at 1600 and a BBQ (with Marcel Steinz and Dave Kent presiding) at 1800.

Again, the Alberg 37 International Owners Association thanks our hosts, Marcel and Karen, for their tireless efforts, and the Oakville Yacht Squadron for the use of their facilities for our Rendezvous.
