This event will take place from the 24th through the 26th of May, 2013, at Chesapeake Boat Basin, Kilmarnock, VA

 All prior, current and future Watkins sailboat owners are invited.  Sail in or drive in.  If 10 or more boats attend, slip rental will be $1.25/ft with third night free.

Marina has a salt water pool, store and club house for our use.  Several nice restaurants, antique and gift shops are also close by for our patronage.  Transportation to Kilmarnock (1.5 miles) provided by Van, Trolley and free bicycles.

We are always looking for Watkins literature, factory photos, and history tidbits.  Your boat brochure, pricelist or photo may be unique or just better preserved than one we have available for download.  Please consider donating a copy to us.  If you have found a source for spare parts that we do not have listed please consider sharing that also.  Also we are collecting names of Dealers and their staff’s and factory employees.  We are looking for people “who were there” to help clarify, correct and expand our History section.
