Catalina Dreamin' 2005

2005-10-20
The weekend of July 8-10 saw the convergence of 116 sailboats to the Isthmus of Catalina island, 25 miles south of the Port of Los Angeles. All these vessels shared at least one thing in common: all were built over the last 35 years by Catalina Yachts. 336 Catalina owners and their guests participated in the 23rd annual Catalina Rendezvous.

After cocktails and a “do-it yourself” barbeque on the “long pit”, Friday evening attendees were entertained at the main bandstand with a charming slide show diary by Keith and Susan Levy, Catalina 470 owners. Sailing from San Francisco to Australia aboard their boat “C’est La Vie, the Levys are the most recent inductees in the Catalina Cruisers Hall of Fame.

Saturday morning, owners had a choice of an informative nature walk conducted by Scott Panzer, or attending a variety of seminars designed especially for owners of Catalinas. Presentations covered care and feeding of diesel engines, furling systems, stoves and LP systems, water heaters, and navigation electronics. Special “trade show” style displays were set up under shade provided by five Catalina mainsails stretched between the palm trees in front of the main bandstand. Picnic tables were covered with wares from Lewmar Ltd, Garhauer Marine, Maxwell Winches and the Catalina Yachts Gift and Apparel Store.

Saturday afternoon sunshine brought the second annual Rendezvous softball game. Held on the baseball field north of Cat Harbor, the big game pitted well over 20 moms, dads and kids of all ages. The close match-up was ultimately determined by a towering home run to left field. All softball equipment was generously provided courtesy of Becky Mucha and her staff at Events & Catering Department, Two Harbors.

After six o’clock cocktails and strolling table to table magic shows by Patrick Holcombe, all guests had the dining pleasure of a Western Round-Up buffet under the stars. BBQ beef ribs, chicken, corn on the cob, with all the fixings were topped off by a great chocolate layer pastry dessert, each prepared by the skilled kitchen crew of the Harbor Reef Restaurant.

Special prizes were passed out to 8 of the 16 entrants in the “Most Innovative Modifications to a Catalina” contest judged earlier in the day. And in what has become a Rendezvous tradition, dozens upon dozens of really special boating equipment and accessories were passed out as door prizes courtesy of Catalina Yachts, their vendors and suppliers. Between give-away sessions, music was provided by “Have Sounds Will Travel”. Dancing continued into the late hours against a backdrop of a slide show of over 750 images of the past nine Rendezvous’.

Sunday morning came very quickly, soothed gallons of coffee and a wonderful buffet breakfast of scrambled eggs, bacon pastries and fresh fruit on the beach. One last fast moving door prize give away session continued until many of the approximatly 200 tired sailors in attendance had won a prize. As in years past, the highlight for many owners was an entertaining talk from Catalina Yachts president Frank Butler, joined by vice-presidents Gerry Douglas and Sharon Day. Mr. Butler closed this years event by giving away TWO grand prizes this year, each a week’s stay at his personal vacation home in Puerto Vallarta, Mexico.
