A 250-boat marina will be filled with new boats and tents on floats as the 43rd edition of the U.S. Sailboat Show opens Thursday in Annapolis, Md.
Among the boats at the show, which annually attracts more than 50,000 people, will be three dozen multihulls, six boats for demonstration as part of the Take the Wheel program and 15 charter boats.
Additional show features such as free seminar programs by Cruising World and Chesapeake Bay magazines are scheduled for all five days of the show, which runs through Monday.
