Here we are once again smack dab in the middle of the fall boat show season. With Cannes now behind us and Ft. Lauderdale on the horizon, I am planning my trip to the United States Sailboat Show in Maryland, which is now in its 42nd year. Annapolis impresses me, not only because it’s the second largest show in the country, second to Miami, but it is also so well organized and in such a beautiful area. I am looking forward to learning about new products, seeing great friends and meeting newcomers to the boating world. My girlfriend, Amanda, who has written many articles for MM will again be at this show with me and will be adding her thoughts in a play-by-play article in the next issue.
