[ANNAPOLIS, MD] – Chesapeake Bay Magazine and the Annapolis School of Seamanship are teaming up with Beneteau, Jeanneau, Annapolis Yacht Sales and Crusader Yacht Sales to host a series of free seminars at the Annapolis Sailboat Boat Show (Oct. 13-17).
The extensive lineup includes practical, how-to topics on weather, docking, charter vacations, navigation, stressless docking strategies, how to get a captain’s license and sailing to exotic destinations in distant oceans, all led by professional captains and international experts.
Highlights include ocean explorer Matt Rutherford, the first sailor to complete a non-stop single-handed circumnavigation of the North and South American continents; and Jim Toomey, humor writer and creator of the popular syndicated comic strip, “Sherman’s Lagoon,” sharing his new book, “Family Afloat – Two Years Sailing the World.”
The seminar series is free to boat show attendees. All of the seminars take place in the second-floor ballroom of the Annapolis Waterfront Hotel adjacent to the sailboat show docks.
Limited seating available on a first-come, first-served basis. Attendees can enter seminars from either the hotel or the upstairs deck of Pussers Caribbean Grill. Seminar speakers and schedule are subject to change. See the schedule at chesapeakebaymagazine.com/boat-shows/.
