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!

Throw away the box, this is some fresh thinking

Seemingly part sailboat and part spaceship, the new Jeanneau Yachts 55 just busted through the boundaries of traditional yacht design. I couldn’t take my eyes off the bubble hardtop that met me at the dock and I stepped aboard with trepidation. A few hours later, I was planning how to spend my not-yet-won lottery winnings.

Paving the Way to Cleaner Boating – How a Commitment to Reducing our Environmental Impact is Inspiring Cleaner Boating in Ontario

By Dave Rozycki

Over the past seven decades, Ontario’s marina industry has developed alongside some of Canada’s largest freshwater lakes. Boaters have been able to enjoy the beautiful scenery and create lasting memories on the water, with certain marinas dating back to the 1960s. As we reflect on this rich history, we can begin to see trends in how our footprint may have had an effect on the environment, in not-so-positive ways. However, by embracing innovative solutions and adopting sustainable practices, both marinas and boaters hold the key to preserving and enhancing the quality of our lakes and marine life for generations to come.
