Mission

Our mission is pure and simple: to bring schooners and people interested in schooners together in a spirit of community and camaraderie to enjoy each others vessels and company at a wonderful location. The Rendezvous is open to all schooners and all members of the American Schooner Association, regardless of the type of boat sailed.

While at Payne's, be sure to check out Mahogany Shoals for a drink and to enjoy the marvelous music of the inimitable Walter McDonough.
