Marlow cruising club holds rendezvous in Florida

The Marlow Marine Cruising Club, a worldwide owners association, held its 18th annual Spring Rendezvous April 25-28 at the Ocean Reef Club, a private resort in Key Largo, Fla.

Members and guests arrived by boat, plane and car and were treated to a number of surprises, starting with an exterior washing of their boat upon their arrival. A sunset welcome reception featured food and drink in a relaxed setting for renewing old friendships and creating new ones while a musician serenaded the crowd.

The following two mornings of seminars were well-attended, according to organizers, with topics that included medical, electronics, engine maintenance, cruising reports and roundtable discussions with Marlow Yachts owner David Marlow.

Yacht Controller presented a hands-on demonstration aboard the luxury cruising yacht builder’s newest Marlow Explorer 66E, Sea Foam.

A “golf cart poker run” led up to this year’s traditional theme party, “The Wild, Wild West,” which included a barbecue steak and seafood dinner with a live western band and lessons on the art of pistol twirling, bull whipping and lassoing.

The final full day featured the tradition of christenings and open boats and an evening awards dinner celebration, followed by more live country music from a Tim McGraw tribute band.
