The Annapolis School of Seamanship and the U.S. Powerboat Show will offer a new hands-on seminar program for boaters at the Annapolis show in October.

The Take the Wheel seminar represents the first time the U.S. Powerboat Show has integrated an educational offering with the interactive component of boat demonstrations.

It includes classroom seminars and an introductory ride on one of four major styles of powerboats: trawler, express cruiser, center console and Down East cruiser. Tiara Yachts, Kadey-Krogen Yachts, Boston Whaler and MJM Yachts will provide boats.

Scheduled for Oct. 16 or 17, the one-day workshop costs $149 per person or $200 per couple. The free includes:

  • A two-day boat show pass
  • Morning seminars
  • Afternoon on-the-water boating experience
