What I appreciated most about the Bellingham Bay Rendezvous was the camaraderie that developed over the weekend. It's rare for this group of boats to meet up because so much of our time is focused on either getting ready for the season or being out with our passengers. When we do run across each other in the summer months, we make small talk on the radio, but this weekend was a time where we got to talk to one another and learn what makes our fleet unique. When the Rendezvous was over and the David B was back at our slip, I thought about how aptly named the festival was. Not only did it bring our charter boat community together, but it also brought together the greater community of people who love boats and boating. I'm already looking forward to next year's Rendezvous, and I have a feeling lots of other people are, too.
