The briefing will be held at 5 p.m. Oct. 31 at the Captain's Hideaway in the Seabreeze Room at Bahia Mar Hotel during the 49th Annual Fort Lauderdale International Boat Show.

Panelists include representatives from the U.S. Coast Guard, U.S. Customs and Border Protection and the U.S. State Department.

There will be an informal reception following the briefing. Because of space limitations, the briefing will be limited to invited captains only.
