TRAWLERFEST-BALTIMORE UP­DATE

Passage Maker - - News & Notes -

Baltimore’s in­ner har­bor is set to host our 2018 Septem­ber TrawlerFest at the brand- spank­ing- new ma­rina fa­cil­i­ties at In­ner Har­bor East. We’re ex­cited to bring our le­gendary boat­ing sem­i­nars to th­ese shores from Septem­ber 25- 29, plus a fan­tas­tic land and sea boat show to match. In the class­rooms, meet peren­nial fa­vorites Steve Zim­mer­man and Nigel Calder, plus newer lu­mi­nar­ies such as weather guru Chris Parker and boat- han­dling ex­pert Bob Sweet. DAN Boater brings their al­ways- im­por­tant knowl­edge on med­i­cal emer­gen­cies at sea, and Kim Russo will speak about her ex­per­tise, how to pre­pare for your next — or first — big ad­ven­ture on the Great Loop.

Those are just a few of the class­room high­lights, but also don’t for­get to swing down to the docks start­ing on Thurs­day. We’ll host an as­sort­ment of boats from slower to faster trawlers, and we’ll even see the de­but of two newer mod­els. First, the ac­claimed Grand Banks 60 that was newly re-en­gi­neered and rein­tro­duced to the boat­ing world last fall, gets a fully en­closed sky­lounge. Feast your eyes on this beauty be­fore she sets sail for Ber­muda fol­low­ing the con­clu­sion of TrawlerFest.

An­other boat to make its TrawlerFest pre­miere is the Hy­las M44 (pic­tured above). Known for sail­boat build­ing acu­men, Hy­las has re­cently re­leased the M44, a downeast style yacht with ex­cel­lent coastal cruis­ing char­ac­ter­is­tics. Of course we’ll have plenty more on dis­play, from Hamp­ton to Beneteau, and every­thing in be­tween. Visit TrawlerFest.com to­day for ticket in­for­ma­tion and for the over­all sched­ule of events.
