The Annapolis Sailboat Show, a key spring in-water sailboat show for the Chesapeake Bay area, will be held April 22-24 at City Dock in Annapolis, Md.

Recently named one of the most beautiful towns in America by Conde Nast, Annapolis will host more than 100 sailboats in water and on land, new and brokerage, organizers said. There will be a mix of catamarans, monohulls, family cruisers, daysailers and bluewater sailboats.

"There are many excellent reasons to attend April's sailboat show," Annapolis Boat Shows president and general manager Paul Jacobs said in a statement.

"It is a perfect destination if you are thinking of getting into sailing or if you are getting ready to purchase a boat. However, the best reason to attend the Annapolis Spring Sailboat Show is the opportunity to shop from hundreds of local marine retailers who offer boat show pricing, expertise and boat show specials. It’s all about getting out on the water in the springtime."

The sailboat show also will have navigational equipment, electronics, inflatables, boating accessories, clothing, gear and related services such as boating clubs, charter companies, insurance firms and lending institutions.

A First Sail Workshop is taught by experienced instructors and is designed for the beginning sailor.

A Sunset Cruise Package, set for April 23, is an all-inclusive special day at the sailboat show that includes wine and food, and dancing to a live band during a three-hour sunset cruise. The VIP Package also includes on-site parking, admission to the show, a private buffet luncheon at the Federal House and a swag bag.
