Career day set for Annapolis shows

The Marine Trades Association of Maryland, the Eastport Yacht Club Foundation and Annapolis Boat Shows are partnering to present Maryland Boating Career Discovery Day, an opportunity for high school students to become familiar with the marine trades industry.

The event will be held at the United States Sailboat Show (Oct. 9-13) and the United States Powerboat Show (Oct. 16-19), both of which will be held in Annapolis.

Organizers will be using the nation’s oldest in-water boat shows as a platform to showcase careers available in Maryland’s $2 billion recreational boating industry.

The event is open to 40 students (between the ages of 13 and 18) and one adult guest per student. Participants will enjoy complimentary access to either the sailboat or powerboat show, a continental breakfast and a brief presentation about career opportunities in the marine trades, followed by a maritime treasure hunt and escorted VIP access to the show.

After the program, students and guests will be free to explore the show through the end of the day.

Students interested in participating in Maryland Boating Career Discovery Dayshould visit to register.

Email with questions or to be waitlisted. Space is limited. Tickets will be awarded on a first-come, first-served basis.
