2015 Mystic Rendezvous

10.05.15 - It has been far too long since this site was updated, but I offer this picture taken during the 2015 Mystic Rendezvous. Steve Creighton (#629) is resting at anchor under the shade of his polytarp awning while Dan Meaney (#2024 Clew Sea Nuf) and daughter Madeline are in the background setting up a cockpit cover of their own. Nine Mariners took part in the Mystic trip that weekend in late June, and a good time was had by all. For the Southeast Connecticut Rendezvous scheduled for 2016, Mariner sailors can expect some changes to the itinerary - more information later.
