Roche Harbor – Moorage & More

Roche Harbor MoorageMoorage at Roche Harbor

The Rendezvous registration fee does not include moorage. Payment for your moorage is completed directly with the marina staff once you arrive at Roche Harbor. And they come to your slip!

For guests staying until Sunday, there is no charge for moorage on Wednesday. Check-in is after 1 p.m.

We have filled our allotted space at Roche Harbor. Some Tollys may be moored on a different dock and need to walk or dinghy over to the Rendezvous activities.

NEW FOR 2022! Slip reservations will be completed using the Dockwa App with Roche Harbor. The link for our group reservation was included in your confirmation email. Please contact commodore@tollyclub.com if you need it resent.

Upon entering Roche Harbor contact the Harbor Master on Channel 78A for a slip assignment. Let the Harbor Master know you are with the Tollycraft Rendezvous. Roche Harbor dock staff will be there to assist you with docking.

Depending on the size of your boat and the size of the slip you are assigned, you may share with another Tolly member – a great way to get know more people.

Entering Roche Harbor

We encourage you to consult your favourite cruising guide and tide and current tables when planning your arrival and departure.

From past experience, it is best to enter Roche Harbor on the West side of Pearl Island. The channel on the east side of the island is shallow and in line with dangerous rocks outside.

Roche Harbor Pearl Island

The following low tides may impact your arrival or departure:

  • Wednesday, June 22: 7:51 a.m. (1.97 ft)
  • Thursday, June 23: 8:32 a.m. (0.99 ft)
  • Friday, June 24: 9:07 a.m. (0.16 ft)
  • Saturday, June 25: 9:38 a.m. (-0.51 ft)
  • Sunday, June 26: 10:07 a.m. (-1.02 ft)

Roche Harbor Dock Staff

Roche Harbor provides someone from their dock staff to assist us. They request you contact a bridge member if you need anything, and not ask the dock staff directly.

Shopping at Roche Harbor

Want a Roche Harbor souvenir or two for your fabulous time at the Tollycraft Boating Club Rendezvous? Then be sure to let the gift shops know you are with the Rendezvous for a discount (please have your club name tag with you)!

Tollycraft 70th Anniversary Celebration

We’re going to celebrate like it’s 1952 on Friday night at the Rendezvous! That’s because 2022 is the platinum anniversary of Tollycraft Yachts. Collect your Tollycraft memorabilia that you’d like to have available for others to browse. And, start thinking about your favourite Tollycraft memories to share during the celebration.

Food & Drink

Rendezvous-Food** Please bring your own plates, utensils, cups, mugs, glasses, etc. to all food events ** (except our final Saturday dinner)

Early Bird Commodore Welcome Drinks

NEW FOR 2022! Join us in the main tent on Wednesday beginning at 4 p.m. for an early bird Commodore Welcome drink. Will it be Moose Juice or Goose Juice or maybe a Pink Yink Ink Drink? Only the Commodore knows and she’s not saying. Both alcoholic and non-alcoholic drinks will be served.

Biggel-Balls & Coffee/Tea

Biggel-Balls (otherwise known as doughnuts) and coffee/tea will be served in the smaller tent Thursday, Friday and Sunday from 7 a.m. – 8:30 a.m.

Join us for docktails on Thursday, Friday and Saturday before dinner. Bring your own beverages and any snacks you’d like to share with the group. See schedule for times

Hop on Pop-Luck Dinner

IT’S BACK! Thanks to the many outstanding Tollycraft cooks, this potluck dinner may be the culinary highlight of the weekend. Starting at 5:30 p.m. on Thursday, we’ll share food, laughter, make new friends and really get the Rendezvous started in Seuss style!

Daisy-Head Mayzie Burgers and Brews

Sponsored by Everett Yacht Sales

Join us on the dock for lunch on Friday beginning at 11:30 a.m. and enjoy a burger and brew.

The Who’s Smoked Pork Roast Taco Feast

A Smoked Who-Roast Pork taco feast is something the Grinch can’t stand in the least!

A new Rendezvous tradition – a club provided Friday dinner. For 2022, we’re offering up smoked pork roast, shredded and ready to make some tasty tacos with all the fixings! Don’t be a Grinch – join us in the main tent beginning at 5:30 p.m.

We took notes of what worked last year and where we could improve. But we’re pretty sure it’s still a work in progress. Please be patient as we serve you our take on The Who’s Smoked Pork Roast Taco Feast

Sam I Am’s Canadian Breakfast

It wouldn’t be a Seussical event, without Sam I Am making an appearance!

Join us on Saturday from 7 a.m. – 8:30 a.m. for breakfast featuring: Green Eggs & Ham, Flapjack Flapper’s Flapjacks and, in honour of our Canadian commodore, Caesars (spicy or mild, alcoholic or non-alcoholic).

Saturday Dinner

The Roche Harbor staff have developed a Seuss themed final dinner that the Grinch would love!

We’re also setting up a photo backdrop to take your official 2022 Tollycraft Boating Club portrait while you’re in line for the delicious dinner.

Join us in the main tent on Saturday at 11:30 a.m. and bring your Tolly’s first aid kit with you.

From There to Here, From Here to There Dinghy Run: On Saturday at 3 p.m. we’ll go from here to there and from there to here in our dinghies for one of our newest traditions – the Dinghy Run! We’ll depart our dock at Roche Harbor and head for this year’s destination for a Tollycraft salute and cheers!

Group Photo

Join us in front of the Hotel de Haro on Saturday evening at approximately 8 p.m. for a group photo. This is our final group event for the Rendezvous and a wonderful memento of the weekend.

Please note that alcohol is NOT allowed on the Roche Harbor grounds.

Roche Harbor Colors

Beginning 10 minutes before sunset, the Roche Harbor colors ceremony is a special event each night during the Tollycraft Boating Club Rendezvous.

Accompanied by music, the Roche Harbor staff retire the flags of the Tollycraft Boating Club, Roche Harbor, Washington state, Great Britain, Canada and the United States. Rendezvous participants are encouraged to take part, either on the lawn by the flags or on their Tollys.

In honour of our Canadian Commodore, everyone is asked to be familiar with O Canada (lyrics, music and more)! And she’s good with just knowing it in English but bonus points for knowing the bilingual version.

To thank-you for reading this rather long FAQ, enter a draw for $20 at the Rendezvous Tollyclub Store by sending an email to commodore@tollyclub.com with O Canada and your name in the subject line. Deadline May 21, 2022. One entry per person – it doesn’t matter how many times you read this FAQ or how many email addresses you have. Winner to be announced at the Rendezvous.

Tollyclub Store, 50/50 Draws, Cat in the Hat Auction, Donations

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.

Cat in the Hat Auction – Check out the auction items!

A new spin for 2022! A Cat in the Hat Auction. On Friday, June 24, purchase your auction tickets from our volunteers and explore our auction display. To bid, leave as many tickets as you’d like in the Cat in the Hat box in front of your favourite item(s).

Tickets are $5 each OR 5 tickets for $20

There’s no limit to how many tickets you can place in any given box nor how many items you can bid on.

Winners will be announced on Friday following dinner.

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. This exhibit is still in the planning stage and once more details are known, we will share with you.

If you have items to donate to the auction, please email commodore@tollyclub.com and bring them to the small tent by 9:30 a.m. on Friday morning.

The Rendezvous Theme – Seussical the Rendezvous(ical)
