SERIOUSLY SALTY: TRAWLERFEST BALTIMORE
Now that the cruising season is underway around the country, many skippers are lining up trips for the months ahead. As you fill in your calendar, consider carving out time for a run to Baltimore in September, when TrawlerFest hits the docks in the city’s Inner Harbor. TrawlerFest is a boat show and seminar series tailored for serious cruisers who want to connect with like minded people in a rendezvous-like atmosphere. The four-day event showcases new and pre-owned boats from major manufacturers (including builders featured in this issue, such as Kadey-Krogen and Nordhavn), and features multiple seminars on subjects ranging from boat repair to trip planning, all presented by experts in the field. The venue for TrawlerFest Baltimore is Harbor East Marina, a newly renovated 200-slip facility located in the heart of the city, just blocks from dining and shopping.
