Annual Westrec Rendezvous
Since 1993 boaters from Westrec Marinas South Florida properties have had the opportunity to experience the Annual Westrec Rendezvous.
This event is a favorite of new boaters and seasoned veterans alike.
The focus of the Rendezvous is to provide Westrec’s customers who own smaller vessels less than 40’ in length an opportunity to enjoy their boat on an adventure they might not necessarily attempt for the first time on their own.
Rendezvous participants get to meet and socialize with other fellow boaters, while traveling on an extended boat trip in the safety
of a group. There is no pressure or navigation worries as Westrec’s experienced staff who are licensed boat captains themselves, lead the way to the destination as well as bring up the rear to ensure a pleasant trip for everyone.
Each year the Rendezvous originates at Westrec’s Harbour Towne Marina in Dania Beach, Florida. Over the years the destination has varied with trips to Key Biscayne, Peanut and Singer Islands in Palm Beach, Marathon in the Keys, and the perennial favorite, Key Largo.
Westrec’s emphasis is on safe boating. All participants are provided with United States Coast Guard (USCG) safety information and equipment requirements as well local navigation tips during the Captain’s meeting and party which is held prior to departure day. This year, first timers had the opportunity to learn their way from Fort Lauderdale south through Biscayne Bay, the feather bed shoal, on through Adams Creek to the ocean and John Pennekamp Coral Reef State Park, and finally to Key Largo where the group of some 50 guests and 10 Westrec staff members settled in for a weekend of fun.
This trip is a great experience for everyone involved. Westrec coordinates all the details for the group, from booking the hotel rooms, planning the meals and entertainment and even providing all participants fuel for their boat at cost. Our marina customers take rest in the fact that they know that we will leave no one behind as Westrec mobilizes staff by both land and sea to insure all the details are attended to.
Westrec’s corporate philosophy is “To provide boaters with the best ever marina experience possible.” The Annual Westrec Rendezvous is just one of the ways the company continues to provide their local customers with added value and excellence in customer service.
