Deer Harbor Rendezvous

Norris Comer Rendezvous

The 15th Annual Wooden Boat Rendezvous will be held in Deer Harbor, Orcas Island, from September 5-7, 2016. Wooden boats of all sizes and types attend the rendezvous, from row boats to motor launches, daysailers to historic tall ships.

Most of the boats moor at the Deer Harbor Marina and are available for free public viewing throughout the event. The rendezvous is a low-key celebration of wooden boats, held in one of the most scenic harbors in the Pacific Northwest.

Activities include a potluck and salmon dinner, as well as sailing and rowing races. For more information: contact
