“Every year in early June, Specialty Yachts hosts the annual Hunter Rendezvous at Telegraph Harbour Marina on Thetis Island. We mark the dates in our Calendar a year in advance and consider it to be one of the highlights of our sailing season.

Lawrence and his team put together a first class affair with the emphasis on social interaction and having fun. All sizes and ages of Hunter sailboats and owners gather to share their experiences and to learn from quality seminars that are held on site. Specialty always manages to bring experts on maintenance, engines, rigging and sailing to impart valuable knowledge. All of this is done without comprising the true focus of the weekend-camaraderie, good food, good wine, good people and lots of laughter.

Saturday evening culminates with a spectacular lamb and pig roast. The hard work of the Specialty crew and its volunteers puts the finishing touches on a great evening. Sunday sees a fine buffet prepared by the marina staff, many goodbyes and a trek back to home port wherever that might be. Ah yes, it’s the memories of last year and the anticipation of the new ones to come that keep us returning.”
