2010 Wharram Winter Rendezvous

We've moved the Dec 10-12 2010 Winter Florida Wharram Rendezvous location to Sunset Bay Marina & Anchorage in Stuart, Florida.   

This venue offers many improvements over the Lake Worth location.  

Sunset Bay has very good access by boat and car, a dinghy dock, large mooring field, fuel dock, pump out, bathrooms, showers, laundry facilities, wi-fi access in the mooring field, boaters lounge with big screen TV, and restaurant.  It is also just a few blocks walk to downtown Stuart where there is an abundance of shopping and entertainment activities.  There is also RV parking available. 

Sunset Bay is located just west of the Roosevelt Bridges in Stuart on the south side of the St Lucie River   (Latitude  27.2   Longitude -80.2583)

Here's their website for additional information:

We're still planning a pot luck on the boats on Saturday night .

Please RSVP to or call David (561) 632-2628 for more information.
