Columbus Day Weekend & Boats

Got plans for the long weekend? How about something involving boats? What better way to celebrate the man who sailed across the Atlantic to re-discover the new world over 500 years ago? In fact, you could actually visit exact replicas of the Nina and the Pinta in West Virginia over the next few days.

One of the largest sailing-focused shows in the world, the 40th Annual United States Sailboat Show is this weekend in Annapolis, MD, on the Chesapeake Bay.

Other events this weekend include regattas in Alabama and Connecticut. Outside the US, you’ve got the Club Marine Mandurah Boat Show in Western Australia as well as the last couple of days of the Genoa show in Italy.
