US Sailing is ready to launch its inaugural Road Show program, beginning June 11 at Community Boating Inc. in Boston.

US Sailing’s Road Show crew will be traveling along the East Coast during the summer to promote sailing and interact with sailors in a variety of ways.

The Roadshow crew — Will Ricketson (Westford, Mass.) and Brooke Thomson (Newport Beach, Calif.) — is coming to yacht clubs and community sailing centers to participate at events that include regattas, junior program clinics, community outreach programs, adult learn-to-sail seminars and other sailing-related events as part of the summer tour.
