The Rendezvous Theme

  • The events and decor during the Rendezvous are based around this theme.
  • Join in the Tollyribbean theme by:
    • Decorating your boat
    • Dressing the part:
      • Friday night dinner calls for Caribbean styled attire
      • Saturday night dinner is White Night!  Show us your finest white attire with a splash of hot Caribbean color
      • And of course, everyone is welcome to dress in Tollyribbean style throughout the weekend. (Tolly Teal was made for this theme!)
    •  If your pet is attending the Rendezvous, be sure to include a Tollyribbean themed outfit for our annual Pet Parade.

Rum Runner Dinghy Cruise

  • Thursday at 7 p.m.
  • Start your dinghy engines and let’s head to Nelson Bay. A past commodore will lead this dinghy parade for an evening cruise and cocktail. We might even try a wagonwheel “dinghy style”.  All participants receive one rum drink – bring your cup!

Caribbean Night! Tollyclub sponsored potluck dinner
