The Rendezvous is an annual event, held Monday through Wednesday in the first week of September in Deer Harbor, Orcas Island. There are rowing and sailing races, pot lucks, music and a BBQ for owners of and those interested in wooden boats from the region and San Juan Islands. It is sponsored by the Wooden Boat Society of the San Juan Islands, the Deer Harbor Boat Works, and Boundary Bay Brewery, with the assistance of Deer Harbor Inn and the Deer Harbor Marina. It takes place the week between the Victoria and Port Townsend festivals, so is a great place to chill between shows.
