|(Yes, the Rendezvous too)|
|Dear PSGBOA Members:|
After much deliberation, the PSGBOA Board and Rendezvous Committee very reluctantly voted to cancel the 2020 PSGBOA Rendezvous at Roche Harbor. The Center for Disease Control has identified the potential public health threat posed by COVID-19 as “very high,” and has advised that person-to-person spread of this virus will continue to occur globally. Given the nature of PSGBOA seminars, social events, and outings where social distancing is difficult and many PSGBOA members appear to fall in the “high risk” group because of age, it appears contrary to medical and public health advice to hold the event. The number of registrations has declined significantly from previous years—we’ve received only 39 to date. Those boats will receive a complete refund of their registration fees. Our sponsors will be notified and refunds of sponsorship fees will be made.
Please be aware that Roche Harbor has agreed to hold our spot for the 2021 Rendezvous, so planning activities for this year’s event will be shelved and possibly used next year. We are saddened to convey this news, but believe the PSGBOA community is better served by this decision. Thank you for understanding.

May be we can do our “virtual Rendezvous” by posting our cruising pictures and stories on line.
Best wises to all and let’s all stay healthy during this crazy time.
Yes, Thanks Shing! I suspect that a lot of us will be out cruising around this time anyway, so we might end up with a bit of a get together! (but staying 6 feet apart!)
