Take The Wheel
An innovative seminar program offers novice boaters the chance to “Take the Wheel” at the upcoming Bay Bridge Boat Show in April. The Bay Bridge Boat Show has integrated an educational offering with the interactive component of boat demonstrations. “Take the Wheel” is a day-long educational package providing both “classroom” seminars and an introductory ride on one of four major styles of powerboats: displacement trawler, offshore sport fish, express cruiser, and down east cruiser.
The workshop cost of $149 per person or $200 per couple includes:
- A two-day boat show pass
- Morning seminars
- Afternoon on-the-water boating experience
- All instruction and printed materials
- Continental Breakfast and Lunch
- Wine tasting social hour
- Friday, April 29, 2011 or Saturday, April 30, 2011
The workshop can accommodate 50 participants. The boat demo rides will be available on a first-come-first-served sign-up basis, with each participant guaranteed a ride on the boat of his or her choice, and potentially more.

The Annapolis School of Seamanship has been providing mariners of all experience levels with the knowledge and skills necessary to make informed, safe decisions when operating and maintaining a vessel. Captain John Martino, president and founder of Annapolis School of Seamanship, and his team of highly qualified instructors, will lead three different morning seminars that are designed to inform new boat owners about the types of boats available and their uses; ownership options and considerations in the process of boat buying; and the safety and regulatory information integral to operating a vessel.
