Western Canada Jeanneau Rendezvous

Jeanneau Rendezvous

Aug 9, 2017

The Fraser Yacht Sales team, (and recent recipients of the 2017 Jeanneau Dealer of the Year Award) was very proud to once again host the 2017 Western Canada Jeanneau Rendezvous from June 16-18 at Poets Cove on South Pender Island. This year boasted a record number of 37 yachts and 112 participants; heaps of kids, dogs, long-time Jeanneau owners and even a new boat owner who had taken possession of their new Jeanneau only two days prior joined in on the festivities.

A fun filled weekend it was – starting off with drinks served by Scott Macdonald from aboard the beautiful brand new Jeanneau Yacht 51 and a BBQ grilled by Ian Fraser. Saturday morning was very informative and interesting thanks to seminars by Ben Cook from Stem to Stern about battery maintenance, Scott Macdonald on behalf of Gill Marine Wear “Get Dressed for It (sailing)”and hearing from Mark Johncox, Tim & Andrew Buttjes about Miles’ preparation for and their adventure of the Vic-Maui race last year on their Jeanneau. Kids were kept busy, engaged and active in a scavenger hunt. Kudos to the boats that participated in the parade – there weren’t many, but they shined in spirit and had a great time. Meanwhile on the dock, a delicious spread of appetizers was sampled in our 1st annual Appie contest. Good laughs and fun was had during the blindfolded dinghy races, whilst those on the dock enjoyed cocktails made by Kevin Pritchard alongside great tunes by Norm Smith. Dinner of course was yet another highlight, everyone walked away with a great prize that was generously donated by one of our industry sponsors.

Jeanneau Rendezvous 2017We have confirmed the dates for next year already – and we look forward to welcoming all Jeanneau owners at Poets Cove from June 22-24, 2018. We hope to see you there!

While Canadians may have been slower to warm to pontoon boats than our southern neighbours, that’s definitely changed as we see more of them gracing our waters every year. The latest data shows pontoon boats now represent around 30% of all new boats sold in Canada and it’s easy to understand why – with their interior space and tremendous versatility, pontoons are near-perfect family runabouts.

Cruising Georgian Bay’s 30,000 Islands: Canada’s Freshwater Paradise for Boaters

The Plan

It’s a beautiful morning as we perform our pre-departure checklist, fire up the engines and prepare to release our lines. And if the long-range forecast of very low winds coupled with plenty of sunshine holds, that’s exactly what we need for the areas we plan to explore on this trip! 

We are departing Midland for a week of visiting some of the islands and anchorages within Georgian Bay’s “30,000 Islands” – specifically those along the western edge. These are the less protected islands which face toward wide-open Georgian Bay, where boaters often have to depart the small craft route and work a little harder at setting the hook but are then rewarded with magnificent western views, stunning sunsets, and so much to explore!
