TrawlerFest Returns to Baltimore


TrawlerFest, the signature event of PassageMaker magazine, returns to Baltimore’s Inner Harbor Sept. 29-Oct. 3, with seminars to be held nearby at the Courtyard Baltimore Downtown/Inner Harbor and the Hilton Garden Inn and Homewood Suites. (PassageMaker and Soundings Trade Only are published by Active Interest Media’s Marine Group.)


The in-water show will showcase dozens of new coastal and long-range cruising boats — power and sail — with a revamped seminar series that includes such topics as maintaining a powerboat (with master mechanic Steve Zimmerman), foul-weather navigation, weather tips, offshore cruising preparations, and how to choose the right boat for your cruising needs.

TrawlerFest also is scheduled for Aug. 24-28 in Newport, R.I., and Nov. 11-13 in Stuart, Fla.
