The Newport show is over; next up is Annapolis which is the biggest US sailboat show. Annapolis is the best show to attend if you are in the market for a cruising sailboat because it features almost all the manufacturers. There is a power show the week afterwards, October 13 – 16. New Bavaria, Beneteau, and Dufour designs are among the models to premier. Two boats that have caught my eye are the Leopard 44 with the forward cockpit arrangement and Jeanneau’s beachable boats. Please feel free to share how the show is going this year by posting back a comment. To the right is a 2009 of timelapse of the Annapolis US Sailboat show.
