Sail America set the agenda for its annual industry breakfast, which is scheduled for 7:45 a.m. on Oct. 11 at the Marriott Waterfront in Annapolis, Md.
Coinciding with the U.S. Sailboat Show, the breakfast meeting will include Best in Show award presentations, a discussion of Sail America's 2013-14 initiatives and America's Cup highlights.
"We are constantly working to support our members and promote the health and growth of sailing," Sail America association manager Peter Durant said in a statement. "The industry meeting gives us a chance to share updates and hear from industry professionals on new initiatives and current issues within the industry. We encourage sailing professionals to get involved by attending and networking with their peers."
The industry breakfast, open to all sailing industry professionals at no charge, seeks to provide updates from the largest sailing association in the marine industry.
This year's breakfast meeting will include an association update and information on future events from Sail America board members, an America's Cup presentation by Tucker Thompson with T2P Media, and Best in Show awards from the U.S. Sailboat Show.
Land and in-water awards for small and large displays will be given out, as well as a Best in Show award.
