Annapolis Boat Shows changes 2013 schedule

The United States Powerboat Show 2013 in Annapolis, Md., is now scheduled for the week before the annual sailboat show because of the unpredictable weather Maryland can experience in late October.

The powerboat show will be take place Oct. 3-6 and the sailboat show will follow on the traditional Columbus Day weekend from Oct. 10-14, according to organizers.

All activities, show features, seminar programs and other aspects of the boat shows will remain the same, as has been the custom through four decades of boat shows in Annapolis.

Organizers said that because Columbus Day falls on Oct. 14, 2013, attempting to produce a powerboat show later in the month in a Mid-Atlantic state could make it uncomfortably cool and wet for attendees and exhibitors. The shows will return to their traditional order in the coming years.

The 2012 sailboat show is set for Oct. 4-8 and the powerboat show runs Oct. 11-14.
