Sail America's Discover Sailing program and the St. Petersburg Boat Show were selected as the location for the public debut of US Sailing's new on-the-water training program called “The First Sail Experience.”

In partnership with US Sailing, Show Management, Sailing Florida Charters and the St. Petersburg Sailing Center, “The First Sail Experience” will be offered twice daily to attendees at the Dec. 1-4 St. Petersburg Boat Show on Discover Sailing docks S7-S9.

Sail America said “The First Sail Experience” is a two-hour, on-water experience designed to offer participants an introduction to sailing in a safe, fun and exciting environment while allowing them a maximum amount of "tiller time" to control the boat.
