The Rhode Island Boat Show, the state’s largest in-water spring boat show, will be held May 3-4 in Bristol, Jamestown, Warwick and Wakefield.

Organizers said the free and family-friendly event will showcase a wide selection of new and used sailboats and powerboats, and marine accessories and services.

The venues are: Bristol Marine and Fleet Yacht Sales in Bristol; Conanicut Marine Services and Latitude Yacht Brokerage in Jamestown; Silver Spring Marine in Wakefield; and MarineMax and Brewer Greenwich Bay Marina in Warwick.

The national Discover Boating program will visit two venues, with sailing clinics in Jamestown and powerboating clinics in Warwick. Space is limited, so participants are asked to preregister.
