CHESAPEAKE BAY NONSUCH ASSOCIATION (CBNA) 2016
FALL RENDEZVOUS A GREAT SUCCESS

The Solomons Nonsuch Fleet owners were pleased to host the Chesapeake Bay Nonsuch Association (CBNA) Fall Rendezvous on September 16-18 in Solomons, Maryland. Many of the boat owners are volunteers and/or contributors to the Calvert Marine Museum (CMM).

The three-day event centered around the resources of the museum. Nonsuch sailors from various parts of the U.S. and Canada enjoyed a cruise on the Patuxent River, on the museum’s skipjack, Dee of St. Mary’s. At the same time, a group was taking a Behind the Scenes tour of the museum conducted by David Moyer, CMM’s Curator of Estuarine Biology. Al Suydam, boat owner, gave tours of the Patuxent Small Craft Center. Other activities enjoyed on the museum grounds included a pizza party and a sloppy joe luncheon.

Saturday’s schedule featured a 5.4 mile competitive sailing event on the Patuxent River with 19 participating boats from as far away as North Carolina and 80 visiting boaters. First place winners included our own Butch and Karen Garren with their Nonsuch 22 “Whiskers” and Ed and Mary Bahniuk in their Nonsuch 26 “Cat-tastic.” Jim and Barb Hauser from West River also placed first in their Nonsuch 30 “Rauch”. These unique vessels conducted a Sunflower Raft-up during lunch. With boat sterns facing each other, the boats form a circle and their unusual boom, called a wishbone, creates the look of a sunflower petal.
