June 19-20 Lake Champlain Rendezvous - a Superior Weekend!
Be sure to read Joan Laundon's rendezvous report in the Regional News, and view a slide show of her photos here.
From the Commodore: "All, I believe that we have just witnessed the finest Tartan Rendezvous this country has ever conducted. This rendezvous is certainly the finest example of a sailing cruise and rendezvous the Tartan 34 Classic Association has ever had. Looking over the fleet on beautiful Tartan 34s, I could not have felt more proud and honored to be a part of this great group of Americans and Canadians. The planning, organization, site selection, food and down to earth friendship was beyond words. Mary Ina and I will cherish the memory of your gracious hospitality. I could only wish that Celebration was there to relish such a wonderful time.
"Thank you all so very much. You are the greatest. The food was terrific and the friendship will certainly be forever." - David and Mary Ina Bourdon

A Note from Commodore Bourdon
The Tartan 34 Classic Association, founded by George H. Colligan and Deane Holt, is made up of some 100 Tartan 34 Classic Sailboats owners primarily in 14 Regions in the United State, Canada and Europe.
The Tartan 34 sailboat was designed by Olin Stephens of Sparkman and Stephens in 1967 and was originaly built by Douglas & McLeod and later by Tartan Marine in Ohio, USA. This sailboat is highly appreciated for her seaworthiness and ease of handling. Several Tartan 34 Classics have sailed around the world, across the Pacific and Atlantic oceans.
Our current Commodore is David Bourdon and Vice Commodore is Richard Larivière of Montreal, Canada. Mary Ina Bourdon is our current Treasurer. Deane Holt remains an active contributor to the Association as well as former Commodore, Web Administrator and true friend.
