The United States Sailboat Show is coming to downtown Annapolis in the
spring of 2012 from April 27-29. Forty-two years ago, the concept of producing a boat show in the water was invented in Annapolis by Jerry Wood. All these years later it remains the largest in-water show of new sailboats in the world and will now be copied in a springtime version. Annapolis City Dock, Ego Alley and surrounding areas including Susan Campbell Park will be the site for this exciting new event.
The show will feature Cruisers’ University, a four-day educational event designed to introduce and train students for life aboard a cruising boat. Classes will be held in the Annapolis Waterfront Marriott and the Annapolis Rec Center.
The Annapolis Spring Sailboat Show will include over 2,000 feet of floating docks, accommodating more than 80 new and brokerage sailboats, both mono
and multihull. In addition, there will be equipment and accessory vendors on land surrounding Ego Alley.
