Schedule Of Events

Please plan on joining us on Friday, Saturday and Sunday, 15, 16 and 17 May 2020 for the East Coast LNVT Rendezvous in Beaufort, North Carolina. Contact John Barker, moc.liamtoh|ljrekrab#moc.liamtoh|ljrekrab.

More information will be coming, but listed below is what we have so far.

We have locked in dock space at the Beaufort Docks. The dock master is Jeb Brearey. His phone number is 252-728-2503. We will each pay him for our slip rental. Slips will cost $1.95 per foot, per night. 30 AMP power will be an additional $8.00 per night, and 50 AMP power will be an additional $16.00 per night. There are five courtesy cars available for you to use to run errands, hit the grocery stores, etc. There are also showers and a laundry.

Friday 15 May

We are also all set for a place to gather on Friday evening, when we will be gathering at the private bar in The Dock House Restaurant, which overlooks the docks and is a very short walk from our boats. This will be a pay-as-you-go bar.

Saturday 16 May

On Saturday morning, The Dock House Restaurant will serve a pay-as-you-go buffet breakfast. After breakfast, we will take a very short walk to the Beaufort Maritime Museum, where we will hold our "Tug Talk" get together in the museum's beautiful Library Room. The room is reserved for us from 9 AM on Saturday until 1 PM. We plan to have coffee and doughnuts during Tug Talk.

Lunch time on Saturday you are on your own to explore Beaufort and eat where you wish. There are lots of choices. After lunch on Saturday, you will have time to continue to explore Beaufort or to wander from boat to boat, visit old friends or make new ones, and see what others have done with their boats.

Dinner on Saturday night will be in an upstairs private dining room at Clawson's Restaurant, a short walk from the boats. I will have to pay for all of us for this dinner beforehand, so more information will be coming out about price per person per meal. I should have this information by February, which is when Clawson's will finalize it's 2020 menus. More on this later.

Sunday 17 May

Sunday morning The Dock House Restaurant will again serve a pay-as-you-go breakfast buffet, and then we will say farewell and scatter on our separate journeys.

Places to stay in Beaufort

Accomodations Map

The information below on places to stay in Beaufort was taken directly from the Historic Beaufort Restaurant and Accommodation Guide, Summer 2019 prepared by the Beaufort Historical Association: 252-728-5225 or 800-575-7483. The hotels are listed below in order of how close they are to our boats during the rendezvous, with the first one listed being the closest and so on. Having said that, all of them are a pleasant walk of just a few blocks to the waterfront and to our boats (with the exception of the Beaufort Harbor Suites, which is located across HWY 70, a very busy road, and in my view that would be too inconvenient.)

(Note: This Inn is about a block and a half from our boats.)

Beaufort Harbor Suites
