"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.
