Sunset in Roche Harbor A new Endurance 720 (E720) sits poised at the docks of Roche Harbor Marina during a classic summer sunset. The E720 was brought to San Juan Island to partake in the annual Hampton Yacht Rendezvous, one of the many boat gatherings for owners hosted throughout the Pacific Northwest this time of year. Photographer Bob Towery was in attendance with his family yacht, a 2018 Endurance 658 named Mahalo (mvmahalo.com).

Usually organized around a boat ownership group, rendezvous are often accompanied by live music, good food, tradition-based tomfoolery like dinghy parades or boisterous themes, and seminars ranging from docking workshops with captains to industry representatives showing off the latest and greatest toys. If you’re a boat owner, find your tribe and mark up the calendar! Check out our annual Rendezvous Round-Up at nwyachting.com for leads.
