Annapolis Boat Shows return this October

Annapolis Brokerage Cove

July 22, 2021

A fall mini-vacay coinciding with Canadian Thanksgiving might be in the cards for many boat-minded lockdown escapees. The Annapolis shows are going ahead at full speed, but will we be able to get there by car? Let us hope the situation warrants cross-border travel by then.

United States Powerboat Show
October 7-10, 2021
City Dock, Annapolis, MD

In October, boaters from across the US gather in the historic seaport of Annapolis to shop from all major powerboat manufacturers. Spend the day exploring a variety of new and used boat types including bowriders, centre consoles, cruisers, cuddy cabins, deck boats, power cats, and more. A great place to purchase boating supplies, navigation equipment, fishing gear, clothing, and marine accessories.

Come for the show and leave with an enhanced lifestyle as you make side-by-side comparisons, talk to industry representatives, and see the latest in boating products and services. It is a long weekend full of boats, exhibits, shopping, drink tastings, and education.

The Plan

It’s a beautiful morning as we perform our pre-departure checklist, fire up the engines and prepare to release our lines. And if the long-range forecast of very low winds coupled with plenty of sunshine holds, that’s exactly what we need for the areas we plan to explore on this trip! 

We are departing Midland for a week of visiting some of the islands and anchorages within Georgian Bay’s “30,000 Islands” – specifically those along the western edge. These are the less protected islands which face toward wide-open Georgian Bay, where boaters often have to depart the small craft route and work a little harder at setting the hook but are then rewarded with magnificent western views, stunning sunsets, and so much to explore!
