2021 Edgartown Catboat Rendezvous

Friday, July 16 to Sunday, July 18, 2021

The Martha’s Vineyard Art Association is hosting a waterfront themed art show, Catboat Rendezvous and Parade of Sail, July 16-18, 2021, in Edgartown Harbor.

The weekend will include arrival reception on Friday evening, Parade of Sail on Saturday and reception for participants, as well as a private tour of the Norton Boathouse. In addition, there will be a preview of the Art Show at the Old Sculpin Gallery, the former boat building workshop of Manuel Swartz Roberts.

Catboat owners and participants are urged to RSVP to Mark Alan Lovewell at mark@markalanlovewell.com

if they intend to participate.

The harbor is fully booked in the summer with weekends being the busiest. With that in mind, participants have two options for moorings:

1: Outer Harbor Anchorage is free for any amount of time and located off the Chappaqquiddick Beach Club. Old Port Launch is available for a small charge and there is a dingy dock in front of Atlantic Restaurant, near the Yacht Club.

2: Those boats who want to be on a rental mooring in the Inner Harbor must make reservations through DOCKWA.COM. Set-up an account with Dockwa before March 1 with user- name and password. This way on March 1 at 7AM they can make individual reservations. These rental moorings are $45.00 a night. Old Port Launch services both the anchorage and the rentals for a fee.  In case of strong NE winds the Harbormaster can open Katama Bay for anchorage. (Katama Bay was open for 5 days last summer.)

Participants are also urged to make plans for overnight stays well in advance.
