Strictly Sail Pacific Sailboat Show

Strictly Sail Pacific opened under sunny skies at Jack London Square in Oakland, California.

In addition to all the boats and gear on display at the show, attendees will have access to a packed schedule of free seminars. Some highlights from the lineup include rigger Brion Toss discussing Rig Inspection and Gear Selection and Layout, Matt Rutherford sharing his Adventures Past and Present, CW editor Mark Pillsbury's roundtable discussion on Liveaboard Boats and John and Amanda Neal's Ocean Voyaging Preparation. All of the free seminars, which are sponsored by Cruising World, will take place in the Exhibit Hall at the show.

For some on-the-water fun, Discover Sailing is providing dockside seminars as well that will include hands-on demonstrations of sailing gear and techniques.
