The first Northwest Hanse rendezvous, hosted by Freedom Marine, was held at Silva Bay on Gabriola Island, BC , August 21st to the 23rd, 2009. Friday night a meet and greet was held and new friendships were formed. Hanse presented each owner with a canvas bag filled with a blanket, hat and drink holders. Saturday morning talks included guest speaker Graham Shannon introducing his latest navigation software, Steve Blaine outlined tips on “Racing your Hanse” and Steve Crowe, the newest member of Freedom marine Hanse division, was introduced and gave a report on his recent trip to the Hanse factory in Germany. The weather was sunny and warm providing a delightful backdrop for the Great Bocce ball tournament held later in the afternoon. Many laughs were had by all! Freedom Marine sponsored a delicious Bar-B-QUE with complementary wine in the evening followed by prizes for every owner. Special thanks to our prize donors.
