First Sail Workshop

Sponsored by Annapolis Boat Shows, Beneteau America, American Sailing Association and SailTime

Experience the joy of sailing with this hands-on workshop designed for beginning sailors. 

Participants in the First Sail Workshop will learn the basics of sailing in a 45-minute classroom session, immediately followed by 90 minutes on the water with SailTime and American Sailing Association instructors on the new Beneteau First 22.

First Sail Workshops will be held four times per day. Advance registration is required. 

Admission to the United States Sailboat Show is included with your First Sail Workshop registration.

All workshop participants receive a one-year $30 Basic Membership to BoatU.S.

Participants must sign a release of liability waiver, and registration is open to children 8 years and older with an accompanying parent or guardian. 

Space is limited and this program sells out quickly.
