The hands-on workshop includes a 45-minute classroom session on the basics of sailing immediately followed by 90 minutes in the Annapolis Harbor with SailTime and ASA instructors on the a Beneteau First 22.

First Sail Workshops will be held four times per day, each day of the United States Sailboat Show, October 8 - 12, 2015. Advance registration is required. Admission is included.

"For five days in October, the Annapolis City Dock becomes the candy land of sailing. In addition to premiering sailboats, brokered boats, and the world's largest collection of multihulls, we are offering sailing lessons and giving away a Beneteau First 22 sailboat, plus there are more than 40 courses offered for cruisers, and the America's Cup trophy will be on display Thursday and Friday. There is truly something for everyone," Jacobs said.
