18 CNB yachts gathered at the port of Bonifacio on 17 June 2016 to attend the annual get-together of CNB owners, the CNB Rendezvous 2016. They were greeted with full honours by the town and port of Bonifacio. Six CNB 76s, eleven Bordeaux 60s and a one-off came to the start line during a gentlemen's rally. The conditions were perfect for enjoyment, with a 15-20 knot wind and glorious sunshine. Participants were able to enjoy a picnic at anchor in the Maddalena archipelago between Corsica and Sardinia, and a night in the Sardinian port of Poltu Quatu, reserved exclusively for the occasion.
