The Miami Boat Show will be on again in Herald Plaza and Sea Isle Marina on February 16th thru to the 20th in 2022.
Assuming Covid-19 doesn't spoil the event, let's hope not because 2020 and 2021 really sucks and we all need a boat show to attend and this is one of my favourite boat shows
The show is over for 2021 and next year it will be bigger and better than ever so start planning your trip now.

Introduction to Sailing

During these 2 hour sessions you’ll learn how to raise, lower and trim the sails, tack and jibe, steer a compass course, and more at the Miami International boat show
For more experienced sailors, there will be intermediate skills building opportunities in these clinics based on ASA curriculum for Coastal Cruising (ASA 103) and Bareboat Charter (ASA 104). During these 2 hour sessions participants will learn several essential skills including how to heave to, reef the sails, steer with the sails, advanced sail trim and crew overboard recovery methods.
Docking Under Power & Close Quarters Boat Control
This is an important skill although one that is not often practiced except when departing and returning to the slip. Participants will learn close quarters maneuvering skills taught as part of the ASA Docking “Endorsement”. These are 2 hour sessions that include the following: 360 degree turns in tight spaces (back and fill), backing down a narrow channel in a straight line, how to handle propwalk, how to manage the boat confidently in windy conditions, coming alongside a pier (fuel dock) and more.
