    Default Brigantine Rendezvous

    Hi all,

    I am looking for any and all info on the Brigantine ‘Rendezvous’ that is currently in disrepair located in Moss Landing, CA.

    I have found the Rendezvous Days Facebook page and am in contact with current/previous owner. Otherwise, I’m looking for any and all history, current status, pictures etc. you might have.

    Considering doing something pretty silly....

    They have a Facebook page, Rendezvous Days. Some pictures. A 39 week old comment in one of them about her being tied up next to the commenter's boat.

    I remember that boat well! She had a round fantail stern. It was owned by Sam Emes. Last time I saw her she was bethed in San Diego. That was very long ago! Maybe 1956!
    Sam Owned a marine swap shop in Newport Beach. When he sold the property the Newport Towers was built on it and Sam Retired to Morro Bay where he built house of curiosities and was known as "Mr. Tinkerpaws" Sam passed on some forty years ago. I hear that the boat is still in Morro Bay and in bad shape. But, I will stop at Moss Landing when I go down the coast for thanksgiving with the family

    Rendezvous was owned and operated by Spinnaker Sailing in San Francisco, based at the South Beach Marina for many years in the late 1990s and early 2000's. Drew, is the name of the company owner, or was. This is not the same company as Spinnaker Sailing in Redwood City, though they were once the same company.

    I sailed on Rendezvous many years ago when I was a sailing instructor for Spinnaker. Spinnaker subsequently sold the boat and operates the Bay Lady, a steel schooner, for it's charters instead of Rendezvous.
