The first big event of the sailing season
is the Spring Rendezvous. This event, like the Summer and Fall Rendezvous,
is accessible by land or water, though members are encouraged to come by
water if possible. (After all, this is a sailing
association.) This event is a big party, generally over 100 people, and
has a small charge to cover the costs.
South: The Endurance Expedition
Shackleton's near-fatal journey to the Antarctic has received a
lot of press in recent years. This is Shackleton's own account—quiet,
understated, and riveting. It also describes the travails of the Aurora
expedition, intended to lay the groundwork for Shackleton on the other
side of the continent.
