The 2015 Strictly Sail Pacific Boat Show, the West Coast’s largest all-sailboat show, will take place April 9-12 in Jack London Square in Oakland, Calif.

The four-day event will include new sailboats, gear, accessories, hardware, more than 90 free seminars, hands-on workshops and free sailboat rides.

The seminar schedule features classes on subjects ranging from learning storm tactics to cruising to Australia. There also will be a collection of advanced sailing seminars and workshops for more seasoned sailors on topics such as understanding the surface pressure map and coastal safety at sea.

Active on-the-water learning opportunities will be available for sailors of all levels on board 30- and 40-foot sailboats, with a certified instructor providing hands-on practice, courtesy of Discover Sailing.

New-boat debuts will include the latest boats from Beneteau, C&C, Dehler, Hanse, J/Boats, Jeanneau, Lagoon and RS.

“New this year, Discover Sailing will offer attendees the opportunity to test-sail some of the latest sailboats on the market, including the single-handed RS Aero, Beneteau First 22 ASA Trainer and the Beneteau Carbon 35,” Sail America association manager Peter Durant said in a statement. “This is a great opportunity to get on the water and see how these new boats are packed with the latest technology making sailing safer, easier and more fun.”
