Frequently Asked Questions:


Q: What is Rendezvous? (updated 2013)

A: Rendezvous is a annual social gathering of our volunteers, members and their friends. The annual Rendezvous is normally held at a marina or yacht club. It is usually scheduled for early to mid July. In recent years, we have been alternating the location of this event between Lake Ontario and Georgian Bay on Lake Huron.

Q: Who can attend?

A: CPS members, students, friends, family, etc. You don't have to be a CPS member to attend.

Q: Can children attend?

A: Yes, it's a family event.

Q: What do we do at Rendezvous?

A: Socializing is a big part of Rendezvous. Many of the activities are weather related and your participation is completely optional. You may wish to tour some of the member's boats, share some boating experiences, perhaps go on a boat trip or somewhere for lunch. There will be kids events, games, nautical competitions, dinghy races, door prizes, etc. It promises to be a good time for everyone.

Q: What about food?

A: Rendezvous officially begins on Saturday morning. Most of our members and guests arrive on Friday evening and usually, they meet at a local restaurant or pub. Coffee is available early on Saturday, with a hearty mid-morning brunch.
After a healthy day on the water or at least out of doors, a BBQ is held on Saturday evening

The Rendezvous wraps up with another brunch on the Sunday morning.
