About The Event
Dear Hylas owners, Hylas Yacht Club members* and Hylas friends:
We are very excited to announce our plans for a rendezvous this year and hope you will be able to join us.
These events have been hugely popular over the years and are a great opportunity to reconnect with old friends and sailing buddies as well as meet some new and prospective owners.
We will be loosely coordinating an itinerary you are welcome to join in whole or in part. The focus of this event is on friendship and community. There will be fun and games with superb prizes, a charitable component**, Hylas swag for all yachts attending and expert guest sailors that will join the rally to Dutch harbor.
There will be cause for celebration and a warm reception for all sailors, even those that have yet to make the leap into "Hylife". We are looking forward to seeing you, please let us know if you are able to join us. We have reservations for ten boats but will make room for more if we get enough notice.
