Unlike the “all about nothing” Seinfeld series and the cast substituting “Yada, Yada, Yada” for actual words, this weekend was an all about something “Yachta, Yachta, Yachta” kind of time at Haven Harbour Marina. It was The Haven Yacht Club’s annual wear white party for new members and it was a wonderful waterside affair, with lots of maritime conversation.
THYC rolled out the red carpet (actually, white streamers and balloons) for the newbies. Finally, we had a weather positive weekend. The sun was out, the wine was flowing and the introductions were plenty. It was so restorative to feel the warmth of the sun and experience the warm welcomeness of all the THYC members.
Our weekend guests, Michelle and Patrick, selected the perfect time to visit. As first time boaters, they were thoroughly enjoying the nautical lifestyle. At the party, there was plenty of noshing, sipping and mingling. We met a bunch of new people and exchanged plenty of boat cards. It was the true definition of warmth.
Post party, we returned to ‘Tis the SeaSun to chill. As the sun set over the western shore we saw two of our new THYC friends, Bob and Faith, passing by in their dingy, so we invited them aboard for some Mermaid Water. After only a few weeks at Haven Harbour we are already building gratifying relationships with our fellow mariners.
Fittingly, we finished the night playing a few rounds of Jenga, the physical skills game whose name is derived from the Swahili word meaning, “to build.”
