Event Description

Hanneke Boon will be in attendance at this years Hui Wharram!

WHARRAM Polynesian catamaran SAIL ~ IN (drive in, walk in, bike in all OK - just get there) Open to ALL Multihulls and pretty much anything that floats!



 We will be holding the Spring Wharram Rendezvous (a Hui Wharram) May 19, 19, 21 in N. Fort Myers, FL (Florida at the North Ft. Myers Beach Park)

A “Hui Wharram” or “Hui-o-waa-Kaulua-Wharram” (Hawaiian) is a group or gathering of Wharram boats but any type of boat is welcome.  Come even if you don’t have a boat. 


There is no easier way to fulfill your sailing dreams – from sailing the trade winds or the local shores – than with a Wharram Sailing Catamaran.  Wharrams range from 16’ to 63’ and are mostly home built of plywood.  Stable, rugged, fast, FUN, comfortable, inexpensive to build, operate and repair! FYI:  http://wharram.com/site/


Come, see and enjoy the boats.  Just have fun.  Weather permuting we sail,  We talk about Wharrams and nearly any other boat.  We tell sailing stories…some may even be true.  We compare notes.  We share pictures.  We look at plans.  We take pictures of each other’s boats and get some really good (and a few bad) ideas.  We eat and drink and just have fun.  Bring a boat if you have one and everyone is welcome … no boat needed!  FREE!  Join us for a Dutch-treat dinner on Saturday night at The Three Fisherman Restaurant and Bar…door prizes!

Accommodations are available at a special discount (Hui Wharram) at the newly renovated http://www.bestwesternwaterfront.com/. Featuring River over looking balconies, and free complementary breakfast at IHOP within the complex.  Our venue will allow for us to beach our boats on the North Fort Myers's North Beach Park grounds.  The Saturday night Dutch Treat diner will be held at the Three Fishermen Restaurant http://www.threefishermenseafood.com/ and (of course) Bar on the waterfront.  Make your reservations early  Within walking distant there are a number of motels as well including Red Roof Inn,  Motel 6, and more. 

Come early -- Downtown Ft. Myers Riverfront District will feature 'Music Walk' Third Friday.
