The long-range forecast looks good for West Coast sailors heading to the Pacific Sail & Power Boat Show in Richmond, California, next week. The show opens on Thursday, April 4, 2019, and runs through the weekend.

A host of exhibitors will pack the Craneway Pavilion and nearby docks, giving visitors a chance to check out several new sailboat models making their West Coast debut, along with new products that include the SiOnyx Night Vision Camera, the EFOY Comfort Mobile Fuel Cell, Cox Powertrain’s 300-hp diesel outboard engine, inflatable Yacht Docks, and SunPower’s new flexible solar panels.

As in past years, the show will also host four days packed with seminars ranging from weather and cruising Mexico to emergency medicine and getting most from your VHF radio.
