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.

This crew will report about the events on video, blogs and social media platforms.


Workers Wanted

Like most people born in 1990, Justin Bennett was on a four-year college track. He and his parents took it for granted that he would attend college before moving on to a steady desk job — until a stint at sailing camp, and later as a counselor, helped Bennett discover his passion for boats.

Momentum from Boat Shows Expected to Continue

Seventy percent of boat dealers who responded to a monthly survey said they had at least “somewhat positive” momentum emerging from winter boat shows, with 38 percent saying momentum was “very strong” or “strong.”
