Registration has now begun for the 2018 Mariner Class Association National Rendezvous from Niantic to Stonington. There's a whole bunch of information available on the Association's webpage, and we've already had nine boats with fifteen sailors sign up. Pretty exciting!
I say "we" because even though I'm the event organizer and I've been organizing these kinds of rendezvous here in Connecticut for almost ten years, I don't look at it as "my" event. It's "our" event. Every year is like a happy family reunion. There are the sisters and brothers you look forward to seeing every year, the cousins who come occasionally, and the new members of the family that have never been to a reunion before. Everybody is welcome, everybody is accepted, and everybody has a good time.
As of this writing, there are just two dock spaces left. If you're reading this and have even the slightest desire to come, I encourage you to register at the Association's website right now.
