The Dickerson Owners Association celebrates 40 years of rendezvous.


     There must have been something in the air back in 1964 and 1965. First, a group of Alberg 30 owners formed their own association here on the Chesapeake Bay, and a year later a group of Dickerson owners followed suit. And as the Alberg 30 Association celebrated its 40th anniversary in 2004, the Dickerson Owners Association looks forward to celebrating its 40th annual Father’s Day Rendezvous in 2005.

     Commodore Bruce Franz says the event is scheduled for June 17 and 18 on the Choptank River, somewhere near Oxford, Md., and not too far from the old Dickerson yard at the head of LaTrappe Creek, where the boats were built. Franz says he’s looking for anyone who owns, owned, built, sailed or just admires the Dickerson to get together for a weekend aboard these classic yachts.
