Less than a month into its tour, the US Sailing Roadshow crew has participated in 16 sailing events in the Northeast and Mid-Atlantic from Maine to Virginia.

Will Ricketson and Brooke Thomson have made tour stops in eight states and racked up more than 2,700 miles on their US Sailing Roadshow-branded 2011 Toyota Tundra.

Since the program was launched in mid-June, the Roadshow crew has visited sailing venues and yacht clubs that are hosting regattas, clinics and other events. US Sailing has created a Roadshow Blog to document and share their experiences.
