Nordhavns Around Puget Sound 2018

We will update this page with any new information when appropriate!  And please spread the word!

We currently have 12+ sets of owners that will be joining NAPS, most by boat but some coming to stay at the Inn or just for the day on Saturday.


5 o’clock somewhere (in the PNW) Friday Night Apps and Drinks on the dock!  Please bring an appetizer to share and your favorite beverage to socialize with everyone!  5pm out by Red Rover.

Saturday Night there will be a dinner up at the tent west of the marina office.  Ribs and chicken will be provided and we just ask for everyone to bring a side or dessert.  Please let us know which one you will be bringing!  We will also have some white/rose/red wine/water for the group.  We had an unsolicited sponsor of our dinner/drinks by Dan Streech of PAE (thanks Dan!).  We will start gathering around 6pm and shooting to eat at 7pm.

As Alison and I have schedules that are keeping us close to home port for much of the summer, we thought it would be fun to organize a “casual” gathering of the Nordhavn Tribe who will be in the Puget Sound area this mid-July.   I am describing it as a “casual gathering” because Rendezvous sounds really official and busy!  We are hoping that this is an opportunity for owners to get together and socialize with just a few organized activities.  So the acronym for the cruise seems to fit the weekend style:  NAPS 2018

NAPS 2018

Dates:  Friday July 20th – Sunday July 22nd

Location:  Port Ludlow (some may recognize this is the home of the 2009 Nordhavn Rendezvous)

How to Participate:

Option 1: Stay in the Marina.  Call the Port Ludlow Marina no later than June 30th.  There is a limited block of slips under “Nordhavn Owners”.    360-437-0513  There may still be availability after June 30th but that is when the hold on slips is released.

Option 2:  Anchor in the bay and join us via the dinghy.  Enough said about this one!

Option 3:  Stay at the Port Ludlow Inn.  If you want to join the group but can’t bring your boat with you, the Inn is situated on the banks of the Port Ludlow Marina.  We’d still love to have you!  There is not a room block for the Inn, so no need to reference the event.  Reserve online:

RSVP:  Please send your name(s), boat name/hull number and email to me and I will send out updates as needed.

Weekend Activities:

There will be some limited planned activities for the weekend, most likely a Saturday evening potluck style dinner – we are working on those details and will get that out when we formalize them.  But mostly there will be time to visit with other owners, see other boats, and enjoy a few area activities or take a nap!  Some of things that can do nearby:  Play a round of golf, visit the Port Ludlow Yacht Club, run your remote control boat in the Yacht club’s RC pond, breakfast/lunch/dinner at the Fireside Restaurant, dinghy cruise the bay, kayak, walk the beach and enjoy the sunshine!
