National Rendezvous 2022

 

















 



 

Amelia Island Florida will mark 460 years under 8 different flags on May 3, 2022.  It’s time to add our own flag, the MTOA Turtle burgee!  Make plans to attend the MTOA 2022 National Rendezvous from Monday, April 11 through Thursday, April 14, 2022, in Fernandina Beach, on Amelia Island, Florida!

 

The northernmost corner of Florida, Amelia Island is 32 miles northeast of Jacksonville and just across the St. Mary’s River from Georgia.  Fernandina Beach has been a popular stop for cruisers over the years.  The 50 block area of downtown Fernandina Beach is listed in the National Register of Historic Places.  The historic district boasts “35 restaurants, 63 shops, 400 years of history, and one unforgettable waterfront sunset.”

Fernandina Beach Marina Boardwalk

 

Vessels cruising to the Rendezvous will dock at Fernandina Harbor Marina, an Oasis Marina, conveniently located on the Intracoastal Waterway.  The Marina features: 4000 feet of alongside dockage, floating concrete docks, a fuel dock, laundry facilities, WIFI internet access, a boater lounge with TV, pump out capabilities at the fuel dock, mooring balls, and convenient walking access to historic downtown Fernandina Beach. All of the transient dockage has been reserved for MTOA.  You must give your exact LOA when providing your vessel information, so that we may fit as many boats as possible. Please be considerate of your fellow MTOA members when providing this information.   

Please do NOT contact the Marina directly to secure dockage as all dockage reservations will be made with the Rendezvous reservations form. DOCKAGE RESERVATIONS ARE ON A FIRST COME/FIRST SERVED BASIS.  EVERY EFFORT WILL BE MADE TO SECURE DOCKAGE.


The discounted dockage rate will be $2.25/foot/day or $10.80/foot/week.  The Electric rates are: 30AMP: $6/Day or $30/Week; 50AMP: $12/Day or $72/Week

The earliest date of arrival is April 9, 2022.  Slip cancellations are required by April 7, 2022.  Once you have registered and your slip availability has been confirmed, you will be instructed on how to provide your credit card information to the Marina.

Check-in time is 3:00 PM.  Check-out time is 11:00 AM.


Attendees arriving by land will have rooms available at the Hampton Inn & Suites by Hilton, the host hotel, at 19 S 2nd Street, Fernandina Beach, FL 32034, directly across from the Marina. Please contact the Hampton Inn directly to make your hotel reservations and tell them you are with MTOA.  Their direct phone number is 904-491-4911. 

 

The discounted room rates are available for stays Sunday, April 10, 2022, through Thursday, April 14, 2022.  The regular room rate will apply for stays beginning on Friday, April 15, 2022.  The discounted rates are: Standard Room-$159/night; King Deluxe-$165/night; Suite-$179/night.  Room taxes of 12% will be added to the room rates.  All rates include use of the hotel amenities including free parking, outdoor pool, free Wi-Fi, and FREE HOT BREAKFAST.  (Please note the FREE HOT BREAKFAST is only available to the guests actually staying at the Hampton Inn.)

All blocked rooms will be held until February 24, 2022.  The cancellation policy is 14 days.  Late cancellations will be charged for one night and tax.  No shows will be charged for the entire reservation as booked.

Check-in time is 3:00 PM.  Check-out time is 11:00 AM.

 

The seminars and meetings will be held at the historic GFWC Woman’s Club of Fernandina Beach, 201 Jean Lafitte Boulevard, Fernandina Beach, FL  32034.  A shuttle bus will be available for attendees staying at the marina, who do not have their own transportation.  It is approximately 2 miles from the marina/host hotel to the Woman’s Club. 

 

The Rendezvous Chairpersons are working hard to plan a National Rendezvous that is informative and educational, but also full of fellowship, free time, and fun!  Remember that this is a member organized and run event, so everyone must participate and chip-in some time and talent!  Everyone in attendance will be expected to volunteer, and everything from start to finish is done by someone volunteering their time!
