Fear not the cost of winter storage, with summer right around the corner, visitors will be able to buy and launch their new boat and enjoy the first good boating weekends of the season. Since the new model year begins each summer, spring is a great time to buy-- low prices, packaging, and monthly financing options are all around. Related services such as boating clubs, charter companies, insurance firms, and lending institutions are represented at the show as well. Shop the latest in navigational equipment, high-tech electronics, inflatables, boating accessories, clothing, and gear. Lucky sailors will win prizes generously donated by our sponsors and exhibitors.

Join us for a picturesque weekend in one of the most beautiful towns in America. Annapolis is a charming seaport town where you can celebrate the end of winter and the opening of the sailing year with the whole family. Cheer from ashore and watch regional high school teams compete in the Annapolis Annual Junior Keelboat Regatta.
