Rendezvous Fundraising

Tollyclub Store

The Tollyclub store will be fully stocked with Tolly Gear including all new items for 2022. This is the biggest sales event of the year, so don’t pass up this opportunity to update your wardrobe and Tolly’s decor.

NEW FOR 2022! Our special edition Tollyclub member designed t-shirt which will be unveiled on Thursday and will be available for sale throughout the weekend, online and at future events while supplies last.

In recognition of our use of Roche Harbor and that many club members count the San Juan Islands as their favourite cruising destination, we will donate 5% of proceeds from the special edition t-shirt to the San Juan Preservation Trust.

The San Juan Preservation Trust works to:

  • CONSERVE the natural beauty, vital ecosystems, and unique character of the San Juan Islands for future generations
  • CARE for the lands and waters under our protection, with our partners
  • CONNECT people to nature, to each other, and to the Preservation Trust

50/50 Draws

50/50 tickets will be sold Thursday, Friday, and Saturday. Look for the volunteers in the red aprons walking up and down the dock (there’s also a good chance they’ll find you).

Tickets are 5 for $5 OR 25 for $20.

There will be a drawing every evening. The winner receives 50% of the sales for that day. The remaining 50% goes to the club.

There will also be a second and a third drawing for Fisheries Supply gift cards ($100 and $50).

NEW FOR 2022! The Tollycraft Boating Club is donating 5% of its 50/50 proceeds to Princess Louisa International in honour of Mr. R.M. Tollefson’s love and respect for this cruising destination. He first visited Princess Louisa in this own 23-foot wooden boat with his brother and a friend in 1938. By the time he retired from boating at the age of 90 he had visited more than 50 times (sometimes doing 2 or 3 trips a year).

One of Tolly’s final wishes was to have some of his ashes spread in the waters at the base of Chatterbox Falls. In conjunction with this request, the Canadian Tollycruisers commissioned a memorial bench and donated it to the park at the base of Chatterbox Falls. To this day, Princess Louisa Inlet and Chatterbox Falls remain a must-do cruise for Tollycraft owners in both the USA and Canada.

NEW FOR 2022! The Tollycraft Boating Club is donating 5% of the proceeds of the Cat in the Hat Auction to the Columbia Maritime Museum in support of their new exhibit featuring Mr. Tollefson and all things Tollycraft.
