Svendsen’s Spring Fling Show Is Nearly Here — No Joke!

It’s happening again! The third annual Svendsen’s Spring Fling Show is on soon — April 12–13. This two-day, weekend event has become a favorite among sailors and exhibitors. It’s a good time to catch up with who’s doing what in the world of sailboat hardware and equipment, see what the local sailing clubs and sailing schools are up to, get the latest news and info at the sailing seminars, view demonstrations, and of course enjoy great company and good food.

This year there’s a new Marine Exploration Corner hosted by the Sailing Science Center with hands-on learning experiences and interactive demonstrations— your kids will love it. So will you!

We’ll be there — join us for for a weekend filled with all things marine.

Seminars and demonstrations will include vacuum-bagging and infusion, live Propspeed application, PFD safety, and Mexico cruising.

For the first time since COVID shut everything down you’ll have access to one of the most sought-after seminars from the old Jack London Square to the Richmond Pavilion: “What’s it REALLY like sailing along the California and Baja coasts, the Sea of Cortez and mainland Mexico’s coast?”

Pat and Carole McIntosh have done just that, and they’ve been helping other sailors do it for about 20 years. Download their free book, Cruising Notes: Things To Know Before You Go. Then attend their seminar and ask them all the questions you want: what it will cost, taking care of your house and mail, finding THE boat, keeping safe, spare parts, provisions, tacos, overnight passages, travel in Mexico, the fun in Barra, and more. They’re back from Mexico just in time for this special presentation.

Whether you’re a seasoned sailor or just dipping your toes into the marine world, you’re sure to find something of interest. Distributors will be demonstrating and selling the latest and greatest sailing gear, gadgets, electronics, and water sports equipment.
