Marlow Marine Rendezvous

The Marlow Marine Cruising Club 18th Annual Spring Rendezvous was held on April 25 thru 28 at the Ocean Reef Club, a private resort in Key Largo, Florida. Members and guests arrived by boat, plane and car to attend this highly anticipated event. Guests were treated royally and everyone’s expectations were exceeded. The first of many surprises planned over the 4 day event was the exterior washing of their boat. Our detailers were ready to hop on board as soon as the vessel docked.

After members received their welcome bag, filled with all sorts of useful items, at registration, everyone’s attention turned to the evening’s Welcome Reception. A beautiful setting on the upstairs terrace lent itself to a gorgeous sunset and later a full moon with its light rays dancing on the water. The fancy fare of delicious Hors d’ oeuvres, seafood martini bar, and other delights were enjoyed by the members while renewing and creating new friendships. The musician delighted the crowd with his serenade of song and performance with a variety of instruments.

The following two mornings of seminars were well attended with everyone absorbing new knowledge and reinforcing their knowledge of happenings in the boating industry. A hands on demonstration aboard our newest Marlow Explorer 66E, SEA FOAM, was presented by Yacht Controller. Other select seminar topics included Medical, Electronics, Engines maintenance, Cruising Reports, and the ever popular round table discussions lead by David Marlow and crew.

Our traditional and ever-popular theme party this year was ‘The Wild Wild West’. Keeping in the spirit of the theme, a golf cart poker run Friday afternoon gave us a head start on what lied ahead for the evening’s Western night. The cowboys, cowgirls, Indians, Tonto and the Lone Ranger, along with a multitude of other famous western characters invaded the main beach for the Wild West event. After a scrumptious barbeque steak and seafood dinner, the live western band encouraged everyone to dance into the night. After watching an authentic Wild West show, those who desired to learn the art of pistol twirling, bull whipping and lassoing were instructed by the show team. Libations, dancing, bon fires, and s’mores rounded out the event.
