The Chicago sailboat show called Strictly Sail Chicago, was held January 26 to 29 at Navy Pier in Chicago. Our own Bernie Luttmer attended this year to show them how to run a successful show!
This show featured the first showing for the NEW Catalina 315, the latest of the ‘5’ series from Catalina. The picture shows our friends at the Sail Place taking part in the christening of Hull #1.
Although that is a well attended show and many builders are represented there, I wouldn’t pass on the Toronto International Boat Show to attend any other show. I would stack ours up against any other show in North America; including Annapolis. The only advantage Annapolis has is the participation of the premier builders that we don’t see here such as Oyster, Hylas, Outbound, Passport and others.
