Coming May 4–7 — The Pacific Sail & Power Boat Show

The Pacific Sail & Power Boat Show is back, with a new location at Westpoint Marina in Redwood City. The show is running next week from Thursday, May 4, through Sunday, May 7, during a busy weekend for Bay Area sailors. If you are planning to compete in the Great Vallejo Race or watch SailGP, you’ll have to plan your show schedule accordingly. The Pacific Sail & Power Boat Show last ran pre-pandemic at the Craneway Pavillion in Richmond and is now finally reopening after a three-year absence.

There will be new power and sailboats on display including Jeanneaus, Beneteaus, the Excess 11 catamaran, the Dufour 390, the Bavaria C42, and more.

Dick Markie from Paradise Village Marina, Nuevo Vallarta, is back with seminars to help everyone who is cruising Mexico. It’s perfect timing, since entries for the 29th annual Baja Ha-Ha will be opening the next week on Wednesday, May 9. Lisa Chapin is hosting a seminar on Sailtime charters, and Mike Gunning from Electric Yacht will help you understand the differences between diesel and electric auxiliary. Mary Elkin of Modern Sailing will host seminars on learning to sail, while Virginia Gleser will share her and her husband’s experience finding harmony at sea for cruising couples.

    We live in Napa & boat out of Vallejo. We LOVED the Pacific Sail & Power Boat Show when it was at Jack London Square in Oakland & at the Craneway Pavilion in Richmond – but Redwood City is just too horrible of a drive from the North Bay, so we won’t be seeing you this year ?. Good luck with the new venue – but we hope to see you return to a more central location in 2024!
