Space is sold out in the new indoor exhibitor hall and adjacent area for the Strictly Sail Pacific sailboat show, which runs April 15-18 in Oakland, Calif.'s Jack London Square.

"We are extremely pleased by the high level of exhibitor support for Strictly Sail Pacific," show producer and Sail America executive director Jonathan Banks said in a statement. "Strictly Sail Pacific continues the encouraging trends from some of the recent winter shows. We are pleased with the very positive exhibitor response and are, in fact, adding new exhibit space to accommodate anticipated last-minute requests for space."

There is still limited space available in the in-water section of the show, organizers said.

In other news, the Sail America's seminar series saw a big increase in overall attendance at Strictly Sail Chicago and Strictly Sail Miami compared with previous years. More than 100 seminars will be presented at Strictly Sail Pacific.
