St. Michaels, Maryland October 22-24
The Annual Hylas Rendezvous will be held this year in Saint Michaels, Maryland from Friday, October 22nd to Sunday, October 24th; the weekend following the United States Sailboat Show. This year the festivities will kick off with a fun and friendly Race to the Rendezvous starting at 10 AM on Friday. The race will begin in Annapolis and take owners and their yachts down the Chesapeake approximately 20 miles and conclude just before Saint Michaels.
The anchorage in Saint Michaels is easy, deep, and spacious. The Hylas Team will be available to offer guidance and assistance if necessary. Upon arrival, owners will have some time to settle in, secure their yachts, and socialize before heading over to Foxy’s Harbor Grille for the Welcome Reception and Owners Social from 6 PM to 8 PM. After the social, there are lots to explore downtown. Including a wide variety of bars and restaurants!
Saturday morning we welcome you to join us at Saint Michaels Marina (Next to Foxy’s) for a light breakfast and mimosa bar served from the deck of the new Hylas H57 VANISHING POINT by David Crafa and Peggy Huang, COO of Hylas Yachts. Then at noon, we’ll take a stroll downtown to the Saint Michaels Winery where the local experts have prepared a sampling of their favorite local blends, reds, and white wines, as well as light hor d’oeuvres to pair.
Saturday evening the Hylas Yacht Club Dinner will be hosted at The Galley Restaurant. The evening will begin with a happy hour event and the Race to the Rendezvous awards ceremony, followed by a plated dinner and remarks by the Hylas Team and the event sponsors Seldén and North Sails.
Sunday morning, before saying farewell, we welcome everyone to join us at Muskrat Park for a light breakfast, fresh fruits and juices, and hot coffee. After which, those who are sailing North are welcome to join the Hylas Team for a leisurely group sail back to Annapolis.
A tremendous Thank You to Seldén , North Sails and Man Ship for their sponsorship of the Hylas Rendezvous and continued friendship, partnership, and support of the Hylas Owners, brand, and family. For anyone familiar with, or a part of the Hylas family of yacht owners, builders, and team members, it is recognized that your continued support professionally and personally has made the experience better for everyone. Both Scott and Peter have been integral to the success of Hylas Yachts for many, many years. On behalf of the Hylas Team, Thank you!
