Newport Exhibition Group, owners and producers of the Newport International Boat Show, will offer a 2017 Education Series for this year’s event.

Education opportunities include the Confident Captain’s At The Helm instruction program and the CruiserPort University seminar series presented by PassageMaker, Sail, Soundings and Power & Motoryacht. Additionally, show ticket holders can tour the 200-foot educational tall ship, SSV, Oliver Hazard Perry. The ship will be docked at Perry Mill Wharf for tours.

“The Newport International Boat Show offers so much more than the latest boats and marine equipment available on the market today,” Newport Exhibition Group show director Nancy Piffard said in a statement. “Our guests have the opportunity to attend seminars presented by top-notch speakers who are well known around the world. There is nothing more valuable than At The Helm training with a licensed captain to improve one’s boating skills. These educational offerings are not to be missed.”
