What a fabulous weekend we just had at the annual TOSCA Rendezvous!! There were 10 boats joining the festivities (Sanguine, Imagine Two, Taina, Tangaroa, Sans Frontiere, Chimera Blu, Ka Ata Killa, Intuition, Vinciamo and Jenichelle), most of which arrived on Thursday.  Martha Thomas left Ventura to join us but had to turn back due to electrical problems.  The weather was beautiful, the company was the best, and it would be safe to say that a good time was had by all.  Between the mai tai’s on Intuition on Thursday, the hike to the top of the mountain on Friday morning, the buffalo milk and burgers behind the bar Friday night, the dinghy races Saturday afternoon and the Saturday night BBQ, it was so much fun!
