The Boat Show: What You May or May Not Know

Latitude Nation — As you may or may not know, the Pacific Sail & Power Boat Show is coming next week, April 4 to 7, at the Craneway Pavilion and Marina Bay Yacht Harbor in Richmond. Tickets are on sale now — don’t forget to use the promo code  LATITUPBS19.

You may or may not have been to Craneway Pavilion before. It’s a sweet spot, connected to Marina Bay Harbor by long paths along the water, as well as a free shuttle. In addition to boats, the Boat Show also has plenty of good food to eat, as well as friendly bartenders.

We can’t promise this kind of off-the-chart sunset during the Boat Show weekend, but the views and proximity to the water will always be there.

As you may or may not know, Latitude 38 will have a booth at the Boat Show. We will be selling and raffling off swag, as well as raffling off an original Jim DeWitt painting. We’ll be handing out magazines, including our favorite back issues. We’ll be kicking back a few cold ones at the party on Friday . . . and, just, in general. And, we’ll just be there to meet and chat with you, which is one of our favorite things to do. We hope you stop by and say hello.

As you may or may not know, the Boat Show is also full of seminars, which we’ll be telling you about all next week. But here’s one especially Latitude-centric lecture:

On Thursday, April 4 at 2:25 p.m., and again on Friday, April 5 at 10:30 a.m., Latitude editor and Doodette Christine Weaver will assist Cruising Notes author Pat McIntosh in leading a seminar titled How to Expand Your Sailing & Cruising Options. These seminars are free with your boat show admission. You’ll find them on the second floor of the Craneway Pavilion.

Stay tuned next week for more seminar information.
