Would you believe what a great sight it is to see a Bay full to 15 – 20 Tartans assembled at a Tartan Owners Rendezvous. I had that pleasure. TONE held a terrific rendezvous at the Bristol, Rhode Island Yacht Club on July 18, 2015. Read the rest of David Bourdon's report here.

Member Spotlight - David and Mary Ina Bourdon

It is easy to write a paragraph about David and his true love/admiral/wife of 40 years, Mary Ina.  They have done more things… in more Tartans... than most ! Sailing since they were 7 yrs or so old, they sailed a Tartan 27, (two) Tartan34Cs, and a Tartan 4100…living aboard for 4 years. They may have missed anchoring in some secluded gunkhole… but, only if it hasn’t been dug yet!

David has served (twice) as TCA34 Commodore and we may need to draft him again to give the “club” another kick in the pants. He has been a truly wonderful partner to work with in the TCA34 Ward Room, although he seems at times to have a phone permanently attached to his ear. We are fortunate as sailing mates to raft up and cruise with the Bourdons and wish them fair winds in the future.
