Last month's Trawler Fest in Greenport, N.Y., organized by PassageMaker magazine, drew 800 attendees for a weekend of educational seminars and activities.

Held June 26-28 on Long Island, the event featured a small flotilla of trawlers and cruising powerboats, along with a display of boats from various exhibitors. One of the highlights of the event was a charity auction that raised more than $13,000 for the Navy-Marine Corps Relief Society.

"Together with our generous exhibitors and attendees, we at Trawler Fest are delighted to support the Navy-Marine Corps Relief Society, which gives back to those who bravely and selflessly serve our country," said Amy Pinter, events manager at PassageMaker, in a statement.

Seminars included Getting to Know Your Charging and Electrical Systems, with Steve D'Antonio; Great Loop Cruising, with Bob Duthie; and Seven Steps to Successful Docking, with Katherine Redmond. Hands-on activities ranged from on-board technical demonstrations to a drill in an inflated Revere life raft from Landfall Navigation.

Trawler Fest will be visiting other locales in the coming months. The event returns to Solomons, Md., Oct. 2-4, with PassageMaker University from Sept. 30 through Oct. 1. Trawler Fest moves to the Bahia Mar Beach Resort & Yachting Center in Fort Lauderdale Jan. 29-31, with PassageMaker University Jan. 27 and 28.
