US Boat Shows LogosAnnapolis Boat Shows has announced the cancellation of the United States Sailboat Show and the United States Powerboat Show events that were planned for this October. The announcement stated:

After only two meetings with the City of Annapolis and health officials, and months of working on creating the protocols to create a safe and healthy environment for the United States Powerboat Show and United States Sailboat Show, the City of Annapolis and County Health Officers have pulled their support and cancelled the 2020 fall shows. We understand the reluctance of governmental agencies to take any risks when it comes to health, but the reopening of the economy and the rescue of businesses in our communities must soon become a greater part of the conversation. 
 
We hope that innovative programs can be developed in the near future to address the needs of both the private and public sectors and allow for future events to operate successfully. We strived to become that success model but seemed a bit ahead of the curve.
 
Thank you for fifty years of continued support of our shows. We look forward to moving beyond this paralyzing pandemic and making plans for bigger and better things in 2021.
