Beneteau Owners enjoyed a busy weekend, August 11-13, 2017.  The Beneteau Owners Rendezvous this year was held at Brewer Essex Island Marina in historic Essex, CT.

Duncan Nevard from Intrepid Marine Electronics brought everyone up to date on news from the electronics world.

Demonstrations and hands on sailing activities with Bob Pattison from Neil Pryde are always very popular with our customers and this group of Beneteau Owners were no different!

After learning about the latest and greatest news from Duncan and Bob we learned about the Bill McCoy aka The Real McCoy. Bill had a very active career as a rum runner during prohibition. Bob McKenna from Flat Hammock Press in Mystic shared his research and knowledge with the group.

It seemed appropriate to follow Bob’s presentation on The Real McCoy with a rum tasting and presentation on how rums are crafted  sponsored by The Real McCoy Rum.

All of the catering was provided by Marley’s Cafe which is great spot for a meal right on Brewer Essex Island.
